Yesterdays stage was all about keeping it tight with the other GC riders until the last climb. We worked well and VDB was right where he needed to be when the action started. VDB stuck fat on the last climb – impressive!
Todays stage with the final climb up the Port de Bales is sure to really start the fireworks! A Hors Category climb that peaks at 1755 meters before dropping down 1600 meters over the last 11.5 km. Thats gonna be some fast descending and there will be riders willing to take risks! One to stay up for if your back home in Aus! Enjoy.. ML
