Today we had a 20.1km climb at 5.5%. It was overcast but thankfully the rain held off until we were arriving at the campsite. Our SPOT tracker has died today, so unfortunately shows us still in Guilestre! We plan to carb load now as have a huge day tomorrow up the Cime de la Bonette (2802m), a 23.1km climb at 6.5%. Yikes. Also saw our first sign to the finish line in Nice ...

Thankfully once over the top there was a little cafe where we hid for a while drinking hot chocolate and eating ham and cheese omelettes. We made it safely back to the valley where it was glorious sunshine and we laid everything out to dry. Phew. An exhausting ...

... I suppose 20 or 30 wouldn't weigh all that much, but I'm sure they must have slowed us down a bit. Each of us had our very own swarm buzzing around our head for km after km. Perhaps this is an indication about how we smell... ? We reached the top in about 3 hours. I found this one of the easier cols - or maybe we're just getting more hardcore... ? After a champions lunch of muffins, Pringles, coke and coffee, it was time for the descent! This descent was quite unique, thanks to ...
