The Galibier.


The tour goes up it today and I’ll be watching on TV. I’m looking for faces of death, the gurning, the pain and the suffering… The same face contortions of pain and suffering that I encountered myself in 2010.

Late last year I travelled out to this region on what was our annual alpine adventure with my ‘boys’ Joe Hall, Kieran Young, Hardysan Mason and Army Armstrong. We had a fuc**ing blast out there and for a week and it was truly awesome.

Our final climb, the Galibier, ruined me. I was smashed… but I tell you this, it was worth every moment of suffering to reach the summit. Read my account again right here in ‘Notes from the Galibier’.

Best of luck to our boys in the TdF today and Cavendish, god speed. Hang on in there son.

    It’s a pity you had to experience it with Kieran as he’s such a twat!

      He enhanced my trip actually.
      Who else would there have been to enjoy a marlboro light with half way up the Galibier?

    Good story though. Love the blog! Smoking and cycling don’t exactly go hand in hand do they?

    ….He’s still a twat!
