Climbing Alpe d'Huez, July 20, 2004
The base of the climb - the last flat section we would see for 10 miles. At this point, I had 52 miles, and 5500 feet of climbing in my legs (and, I hadn't eaten enough and my water bottles were only half filled). The road was closed to vehicles a few hundred meters ahead.
