On the Col de Tourmalet, the final climb

On the Col de Tourmalet - the final climb

A still from the Etape du Tour – a 113 mile bike race from Pau in the French Pyrenees to the Col du Tourmalet – that’s me on the left by the way – and yes it did hurt! The race replicates one of the most gruelling mountain stages from the 2010 Tour de France and is ridden by the professionals a few days after us.  A long winter of training paid off and I completed the course in 10.5 hrs. Thanks to team members Andy B (shown, right) Chris and Barry.
