Stage 19: Embrun – Salon de ProvenceJuly 15, 2017, 7:17 pm
Pro prediction: Bunch sprint: set up for a fast day.
A lumpy climby start to the day on legs with two days of Alps saw a very quiet neutralised start…. followed by a 30km gentle descent run off at speed…. by this point both the heat and the headwind had intensified and cycling on my own to FS 3 I certainly felt weary; but a bonus coffee and ice cream stop and getting in a group made the ride through lavender fields and gently rolling Provence fields and rock valleys an enjoyable ride- that was until we hit the flat roads with headwinds in excess of 20km/hour….. but a good day.
