... It is a 21-day race around the country of France. Stages are usually 80-150 miles and cover various terrain. Typically they cover 2000-2500 miles total. The winner of the Tour is the guy who consistently finishes each day/stage towards the front. Each day there is a stage winner, which is a huge accomplishment for a rider since the Tour is basically the top 190 cyclist in the world. Not every rider goes for the overall win some just try for a stage win. This means some days ...

rare to see the peak as it is usually covered in mountains.
From here we did a super long decent back into the valley.
At the bottom we took a vote, continue as planned and climb another ...
... and then straight into the first climb Col du Chaussy. Within the first km I had a bloody flat....I reckon I scored the first puncture on this year's Etape.
Up and over the first climb and I knew I was going to have a tough day. There were still 3 big climbs left and already the sun was blazing and the temp rising. After 60kms we then hit the foot of Col du Glandon, the biggest and toughest climb of the day +20kms at ...
