Stage 10 of Le Tour was especially damp and wet due to fog and rain. After a fullgas start to the day up to an altitude of 2408M.

Back in his hotel room Koni had enough energy left to invent a fantastic improvised shoe-dryer.

Every cyclist who ever had to put on wet shoes knows how welcome this little device will be to Patrick tonight!
