Posts from our girl Kate as she joins Doug and the team for their week 2 attack on the Alps.
A privilege to ride with the The Tour 21 team today. I was planning on doing 3 days but if I'm honest these guys are putting in superhuman efforts and they broke me! (Also the profiles are ouchy). I can vouch that the The Tour 21 team are digging really deep, sustaining real injuries and pain and doing so because they are raising vital funds for the cureleukaemia trials. Please support these legends if you can!
In awe of the The Tour 21
team today. The Col de Granon is unrelentingly BRUTAL in a car never mind on a bike. This will be a phenomenal Tour de France
stage next week! Please do support if you can and donate to raise vital funds for cureleukaemia
because no one should die from blood cancer.
This was Douglas Robertson coming up the Col de Granon or 'Col de F*@! Off' as he very quickly described it on Stage 11. He didn't even notice I had chalked the road he was so unbelievably broken. The pictures look amazing (largely thanks to the awesome Joolze Dymond photography
) but the The Tour 21
team are pushing themselves so hard to raise funds for cureleukaemia
. One of the team is riding for his daughter, diagnosed with Leukaemia, because on 2% of funding currently goes to childhood cancer...that's £700 per child. Blew my mind as a parent.
