A day in the Gruppetto for Mr Voss today- and nice to see him on the lower slopes of the Col du Glandon. I can’t repeat exactly what he said about the Glandon -, however you can imagine – it’s a 21 km climb and it was +30C all day. He was thankful at least that the experienced ‘drivers’ of the ‘autobus’ know very well what pace to go at to ensure everyone arrives home in good time.
Apart from the mountains the other thing about today was the huge number of fans and Vossi wants to say thanks especially to all the German fans he saw on the road today. Tomorrow we expect more of the same – and we will move the Vossi Fan Club towards the Croix de Fer to cheer him onwards.
