As the last big mountain day, this stage could decide the entire race.
I knew it was a stupid idea, but at least I had a backup plan.
Oh, and no parking your tank here!
Pré means meadow in French – so Col des Prés clumsily translated means “mountain pass of the meadows.”
Don’t worry, only one climb today. It does happen to be the LONGEST climb in France.
We almost had enough for a peleton today as Eric joined Martin, Barry, and I for the first time . Being Flemish, not surprisingly he’s a very good cyclist.
