That’s it! Tour de l’Ardèche is finished! Now a few days without the camera, working on The Road Book instead, before heading to Innsbruck for Worlds.

The penultimate day of Tour de l’Ardèche is done. As beautiful as it is I’m going to be pretty pleased when it’s finished tomorrow. Four or five hours a day in total travelling to and from stages makes it a pretty gruelling event to cover. With one day to go Kasia Niewiadoma took the race […]
