Well, thanks to the snow, I've finally had a chance to spend some guilt-free time getting to grips with putting this blog together for our Coast-to-Coast ride in July, and get all the necessary bits and pieces linked together: Twitter updates, a Facebook group and all that. Next will be some kind of advertorial for the hotels we stay in, in return for some huge discount, natch.
Enough about business; here's some motivation: Pantani 'pips' Armstrong on the Ventoux in July 2000 at the Tour. And several of us doing the ride this July were there on that day, on the corner by Chalet Renard at the beginning of the clip, just as Pantani gets back on to the Armstrong group. Awesome.
