Le Tour Recap: Been Mountain Biking

Riding mountain bikes for the past few days with Scott Bikes during Scott Week, our Tour coverage will resume tomorrow, ‘till then have a look at this BBC article about racer body types.

One of the race’s most famous climbs, the Alpe D’Huez, a difference of three kilos could make a difference of up to two-and-a-half minutes over the 14km of the ascent.

Also see the AP’s interactive feature on the Tour. 

American Andrew Talansky became the latest top rider to abandon the Tour de France. Defending champion Chris Froome, two-time winner Alberto Contador and sprint specialist Mark Cavendish have already been forced out of the race due to injury after all suffered heavy crashes in a treacherous first half of the Tour.

And we’re tuning in again tomorrow.
