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:

I thoroughly enjoyed your article. You captured well not only the basic facts of the Etape, but the spirit of the event as well. Allez! Allez! Allez!

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!

A+

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.
