Finally some sunshine, well at least a peek through the clouds every now and then. Ready to ride at 5.30am and the night clerk forgot to leave the key out for the shed. Another late start then I'm off to climb Col du Mollard.

St Jean ...

By now it was almost 10pm and tomorrow it would be back to the climbing, so we took our short stroll back to the hotel and called it a night.

... Dogma, worth probably around $12k to $15k. I figured nobody would mess with mine with that thing sitting there.

We got our stuff up to the room and I needed a rest, so we relaxed for a couple of hours being serenaded by a band warming up for a concert in the parking lot next to the hotel. We made our way into Centre Ville, which was just a 5 minute walk from the hotel. There we found a pizzaria to have supper at. The meal was pretty ...
