... Thompson group joined us. These folks were here on a viewing trip and were not riders. They were characters however and dressed up in all sorts of crazy outfits. They had a lot of energy. The rest of us however were all pretty spent after cycling for 5 straight days.
After I ate and drank a bunch of water I found a tree and took a little nap. I don't know how long I slept but it was much needed rest. Pretty soon more and more Tour traffic was driving by. Each team ...
... 3-mile climb at +7%. During tonight’s meeting I really started to feel run down. My attack on the last climb followed by hanging out atop a hot mountain was starting to catch up to me.

Our next climb, the Col des Aravia was short, only a few
miles, with an average incline of 3%. Our joke was that 3% ...
... 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 ...
