Alpine Time Trial

Compte à rebours final. As this is the 100th Tour, things are a little different and that means the final time trial (TT) is not on the second to last day and is a bit bloody hilly. Alpine TT’s are cool though! Always like the bike set-ups for a stage like this as you can’t have a full-on aero bike, nor a standard race bike… something in between. That always means choices and that can affect the outcome. Not today. Some lost out to the rain, but none of the big hitters suffered from it. Talking of suffering, Jean-Christophe Peraud falling off on a recon ride, breaking his collarbone and then racing. Hard nut. The outcomes whilst being a fairly secure thing, you never know. But we know. Things are now set-up for a royal rumble in the alps over the next day or so. Can’t wait.

    But did you see Peraud come off for a second time in the TT? Landed on the same shoulder, I couldn’t look at the reply, OUCH!

      Yea! I winched. Poor bloke I guess, hard nut and as it’s the Tour the riders get all heroic. Respect.
