Project Description

I couldn’t wait to find out what thousands of Etape du Tour riders will face come next July so the day the route’s announced, cunning as a fox, I find myself in the start village of Pau – ready for 150km and the ascent of the Col du Tourmalet and Hautacam.

Low cost airlines, long days, short nights and a final mountain soirée before the winter chews up the land ’til spring. And by the looks of it, not a moment too soon…
