Reports from Le Tour de France

One of the teammates from the Boston Road Club made it across the Pond to attend a few stages of the Tour de France this year. Check out his photos and commentary here.

A quote from the mighty Kioko,

"I rode up Pla D'Adet where Hincapie won and I have a new respect for the tour riders after doing it. Pla D'Adet is a Hors Category climb which was like the beginning of hill number 5 on the Tuesdays hill ride but stretched out for 6 miles with crazy switchbacks. I had to take 4 breaks going up because it was so steep and I almost threw up."

Climb rating = Barf Worthy
