Trans Gaule 2008: Day 17: It's got to the point i could pre-write this blog!. Rene sets stage record (5:43) while i start rubbish (uphill) & come home like a train for 14th in 7:25. Tomorrow the end with hot weather forecast might be a quick post as

A long stage (70K) but finally a glimpse of the Mediterranean and a
forecast for 33 degrees. With an uphill start & 3 cols of around 1000M
early i was soon "running" with unfamiliar faces as simply the usual
suspects could run hills whilst i couldnt. By 15k it was off with the
gloves & sleeves & at 40K it was singlet & headband time thankfully as
we now got some good flat & downhill stretches. In total i passed 11(i
was that far back!) & life was as usual when i passed the Swedish arny
team with 8 to go.
