|A nice pair of Category Climbs, that is! I went to France this year and rode in the Etape du Tour...and I wrote up my adventures, complete with pictures and profanity. Here it is:

|Abraham Olano has only beaten me once. Oh, and I have beaten Indurain in every race we have done!!
Gregory... we'll have to hook up next summer! Your story was a blast to read and well worth two or three nights of waking in a cold sweat Bagargui flashbacks!

|Terrific article and having driven over these two passes - which was, as Greg's experience indicates, certainly a good thing, I can attest to the scenery and steepness.
Note also that this is the stage that Tyler won with a breakaway and solo'd all the way to Bayonne. Greg's article makes me re-consider what that means.
