Finally…some actual pictures of the Trans Provence race. And a real story by a real journalist, Seb Kemp. We love this paragraph, written after the epic hail and thunderstorm stage:
"This is only day two and my mind has been blown. Today is a day I will not forget for a long time, not just for the ascents, but the pure survival aspect of it and the camaraderie. I feel I shared an experience with several dozen people that none of us will ever forget. I feel I could see these same people in 30 years time and we would recall tales of lightning-dodging, river-running hell."
