One of the big stages finished in Cerler, after a 12km climb. It was going to be a great chance to see the riders in action!
The climb was 12km and had 6 hard ks, especially the first 4 and the 2 past Cerler, at 10%.
Grafitters!!! Watch out!
And we had a rest stop and met with these two dutch fans. Viva Freire, Viva Rabobank!
The following day, I talked to the CSC Fisio and he told me that when VdV was caught by the peloton, Iñigo Cuesta was leading it at 26-30km/h for the first 4 hard km. Hard to believe, impossible to do! After Cerler, the pack was completely broken and the stage was for Piepoli, Menchov was 2nd.
Next day start at Benasque. Go Christian!
