Tour de France
Well: here's a screenshot of Ed and I near the finishing line on Mont Ventoux, some 500m below the Chalet Reynard. I'm the yellow blob encircled on the right, and Ed is in black, to my right. It was a fun and festive way to celebrate Bastille Day in France: one massive party on my favourite mountain.
At 74 years old, Ed was scheduled to climb to the summit two days later from Malaucène, in my books the toughest of the three ways to get to the top. I told Ed that should he beat my time of 2 hrs. 17 minutes to the top, I'd send a bottle of champagne up to his room.
And beat my time he did... well done my friend...
