Italy broke my bike but it didn’t break me, next up France and Le Tour

Arriving in Brescia and the end of my 3,235 km 2013 Giro d’Italia ride.

On a day like today it's what's in your head that counts, not your legs

Nearing the end of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo climb, the final climb of a long day.

This time road closed means road closed

Bitterly disappointed that I had to cancel stage 19 of my Giro ride due to road closures and snow.

It comes to something when you consider a 12 mile ride up a mountain a rest day

The Mori to Polsa mountain time trial on stage 18 wasn’t as bad as it looked on paper after all.

How on earth did I end up back here and which way to Venice now?

Heading into Valeggio sul Mincio with a little over half of my ride to Venice remaining.

Mont Cenis bares its teeth while Andrate is the sting in the tail

The start of the day and after a short climb out of Valloire came a descent of the Col du Télégraphe.

There’s snow stopping me today, I’m heading to the Galibier!

At the top of the Col du Mont Cenis climb, clear skies and spectacular views, but very very cold.
