Critérium du Dauphiné

A bit of a late post about the Critérium du Dauphiné which passed our door on Saturday 8th June, a lovely sunny day here in the Oisans, after a long winter and very late snow.

Most of the village turned out to see the riders go by, there was a lovely atmosphere with lots of chat and catching up in between the groups of riders. There were some tired faces amongst the peloton but that isn't surprising really!

A few of our photos on this link.

In a few weeks time (18th July) we'll be seeing some of the same faces coming past in the other direction during stage 18 of the Tour. With 2 ascents of Alpe d'Huez ahead of them it should be interesting to see the pace that is being set...

The Col du Galibier is open for 2013!

It opened last night.

Our guests are riding there tomorrow, so we'll have some good stories of the snow banks and snow walls over dinner tomorrow evening!
