We’re surrounded by the mountains and awaiting the arrival of Le Tour to the Pyrenees. We’ll set off and get a good warm up before climbing the modern classic - Port de Balès. Since its introduction in 2007 it has featured more or less every 2nd or 3rd year since and one of our favourite climbs in the Pyrenees. Climb Balès this morning ahead of the race and watch the race on the final climb, Col du Peyresourde, returning to our hotel after the race finish. Will a daring descent establish victory today?
