A short but tough final day in the Pyrénées featuring no fewer than five passes

At the top of the Col de Peyresourde – the third of five very hot and tough Pyrenean climbs.

Into the high mountains and a stunning ride up to Col de Pailhères

On the Col de Pailhères climb – possibly one of the prettiest passes I’ve ridden in the Pyrénées.

I can cope with the cold and wet but three days of head and cross winds is becoming quite dispiriting

Approaching the top of the appropriately named first climb of the day – Col des 13 Vents.

If I thought I was getting a recovery ride today then a ferocious headwind soon put paid to that

Approaching Les Baux-de-Provence and the only climb of the day – Col de la Vayède.

Even an early mechanical couldn't put a damper on a ride like today

Today’s stage was long, hot and lumpy but the time just seemed to fly by.

After 3 tough days in Corsica the Nice time trial was a welcome relief

Riding along the beachfront in Nice on the Promenade des Anglais at the end of the stage 4 time trial.

Today I have ridden quite possibly one of the best cycling routes in the world

Shortly after the first climb of the day – Col de San Bastiano – on the Golfe di Liscia.
