Stage 16: Le Puy en Velay to Romans sur Isere

July 11, 2017, 7:00 pm

This is set up for a pro bunch sprint; wide sweeping roads at the finish preceded by a flattish 50km through the Cotes du Rhone vineyards.

No transfer today; weather forecast to be cloudy/ sunny- as we rolled out from Le Puy what did we get: absolutely lashed it down: no rain cape- wet again but slightly warmer but a nice start up the gentle Cat 3; coffee in a cafe at FS1….. onto a drying rolling road… pastureland, to pine trees…. all at about 1000m… lovely…. FS2 and on to the descent through the Ardeche down to the Rhine and 50km later on a transfer bus into the heart of the Alps…. two big days await us……

On the 24th June 2017, the Tour de Force riders will start cycling from Dusseldorf. Whether cycling two or more days, this is a heroic undertaking. It will hurt!
