Is all getting ‘Jangly Jangly’ up here in the Alpes

Steve and Pete - Etape practice, May 11Just about 12 hours to go to the Grand Depart…….and Steve and I are rather keyed up.  Drive down to Saint Michel de Maurienne went smoothly – French roads a dream.  Witnessed a spectacular electric storm from Jon’s balcony last night and were then joined for some moral support by our good friend Simon Ryley, who nipped down from Geneva.

Today we visited the competitor village, registered for the event, met up with 4 of our fellow elite atheletes and surveyed beacoup de bike porn.

The bikes have been re-assembled, the gels, bars and carb drinks weighted and measured – there is not much more to do now before the off.

A massive thankyou to all of you who have visited the site and donated so generously to the Trust – we have raised over £1500 since the site went live on Friday.

Next stop Alpe d’Huez! Weather for tomorrow is likely to be warm and sunny!
