Day Two at Tour de l'Ardeche 2018

After such short stages yesterday, today felt like a marathon at almost 130km. It’s far more fun to shoot when you don’t have an eye on the clock to get to the finish after 10km! 🙂 With 10km to go I was pretty sure Tayler Wiles was going to stay solo until the finish as the gap didn’t seem to be coming down very fast from what I could see and hear on the radio, but it wasn’t to be.

Directions to the start at and more importantly, food!

Rally Cycling make their way to sign on

Susanne Andersen leads the bunch

Silvia Valsecchi sets the pace into the steepest part of the climb

Alexis Ryan attacks!

Kasia Niewiadoma leads a select group

The accidental (?) escape of the top two in the GC

Tayler Wiles goes solo

My favourite spot today so it gets two photos! 🙂

10km to go and the gap is still huge!

Ruth WINder! (If tabloids covered women’s cycling they’d use this headline a lot! 🙂 )

Tayler Wiles gets a bit of vertigo on the podium (I may have made that up, but the podium it crazy high. They really should issue hard hats for anyone who climbs up there!)
