We had mountains today at Tour de l’Ardèche and plenty of them! First weaving along a beautiful gorge and then Mont Ventoux (without the moonscape bit at the top, incase you’re wondering where those photos are! 😉 )
The climbing continues tomorrow. The finish tomorrow looks super hard. Looking forward to more fireworks!
Katherine laughs at the prospect of the climb up Mont Ventoux
Tanja Erath practices her cross skills getting to the start line
It’s a long way down, on the road and off the edge!
Beate Zanne leads the break
The peloton weave along the gorge
One long ass line as the descent begins
USA lead the chase
All back together
Kasia Niewiadoma leads on the descent
Guess I’ll have to get used to Eva being in Orange. It’s like practice for 2019!
Tiff begins the final climb
The very elite group
Mavi Garcia attacks
And eventualy gets Eider Merino for company
Eider wins solo!
Spent. Time to recover and do it all again tomorrow!
