Stage 19 – Tour de France completed
Stunning landscapes, mountains, waterfalls, glaciers, sun, rain… we had it all in what was an incredibly amazing stage. After yesterday’s mega effort it was rewarding to ride Europe’s highest pass and complete Stage 19 relatively comfortably albeit in the pouring rain… riding at these extreme altitudes is a real buzz however the decents are definitely not for the faint hearted. Again this will an amazing stage to watch the pros battle.
We’ve transferred from the finish of Stage 19 in Tignes to Albertville for what will be the king of all stages. While just 130km long Stage 20 features 4,450 vertical metres of climbing from Albertville to a summit finish in Val Thorens…. my ticket is booked for Paris, we’ve got this.
