Stage 10 - Chambery to Gap - 179km

The comment of Christian Prudhomme

It is custom in France to hope for French fireworks at the finish line on Bastille Day, a hope that is evidently not shared by the rest of the pack… After the start from ChambĂ©ry, which also hosts the Classique des Alpes Juniors every year, the Laffrey climb and the Noyer mountain pass will be the two major hurdles on the race programme before the stage finish in Gap, the county town of Hautes-Alpes.

  1. Pleased everything is going well. It's v interesting following you and then watching the pros doing the same a few days later, the only downside being that Nik is getting ideas ;-(

  2. Following everything from here in Bedlington. Went to Holland recently and had trouble with my GARMIN 705. It seemed when i used it to help with route finding that i lost a lot of the data. Subsequently used it in Mallorca without using the navigation tools and it worked perfectly.
