They'll soon be up there, those poor bastards. A flat day today, cobbles tomorrow, a rest day on Monday, then...bang, the Alps.

I was out there last week. The Lacets is a remarkable road, just a shame it isn't that long.
No Ventoux for the Tour this year, sadly. That is another fantastic climb, if brutal.
