Todays ride was meant to take in stage 18 of the 2011 Tour de France over the Col d’Agnel, Col d’Izoard, Col du Lautaret and the Col du Galibier from Pinerolo – however due to the Col d’Agnel being shut we drove to the top of the Col de Sestrier before dropping down to Briançon via the Col de Montgenevre and looping round to the base of the Col d’Izoard and continuing on the route from there. A big day in the mountains.
