Humbled by Giants.

July 13, 2010

It was like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. Every few metres, there were riders slumped over their bikes at the side of the road. Each of the famed 21 virages saw people leant up against the walls, taking any small amount of rest they could. There were queues for the alpine streams that traverse the mountain, with riders taking ice-cold showers to try and cool themselves down.

Awesome post over at the Rapha blog go read the rest.
