Looking Good…

14 Jul

On this Bastille Day, some 300 thousand die-hard spectators lined the path of what’s considered cycling’s most difficult climb.  The fact it came at the end of Le Tour’s longest stage didn’t make the feat any easier.

Froome takes Mont Ventoux on Bastille Day.

As it happened, overall leader Chris Froome ascented to a first-for-Britain win atop the feared Mont Ventoux, not only retaining le maillot jaune which he snagged a week ago, but also earning the polka dot jersey while re-stretching his lead time to more than four minutes.  Paris is clearly looking good for him, though of course an entire week remains.  In any case, after the collective exhaustion of reaching this stage 15 summit finish, tomorrow’s second rest day must for everyone look as good as Froome did today.
