Bradley Wiggins at the Tour of Britain 2010

With Bradley Wiggins in the yellow jersey the Tour de France heads over Croix de Fer today, a super category mountain climb.  I’ll watch this one with particular interest as this was a climb Anthony, Phil, Martin, Pablo, Giles and I undertook on our recent visit to the Alps.  It will give a different perspective to watch how these guys relatively blast up it compared to the slog we endured!

6277ft climb

The climb is long and relentless and was perhaps the most difficult that we did, not helped by the heat.
