Cycling to new limits

Stats of the week: run 37K, cycled 194K, 2 gyms

Oh folks, what have I done!

This week I received confirmation by that I got a number to cycle this year's l'etape du tour! It's not any leg, it's the one finishing on top of Mont Ventoux! What means that after 140K with some "minor" mountain passes there will be waiting 1,600 height meters to climb. I have done some sporty events so far but I reckon this is going to be the toughest day of my life. For me it's only a one-day-race - I have increasing respect for those who do it as just one leg of the 3-week-tour.
