Galibier (Video of what VP needs to train for)

Wet and windy day today so I have elected to take a rest day and spend some time surfing YouTube for videos of l'etape and the climbs that could be included in the 2013 l'etape.

There are quite a lot of video's on YouTube and over the coming days I will be creating a dedicated page on the blog to showcase some of my favourites. In the meantime I thought I would share a couple that portray the what is involved in completing the l'etape du tour.

The first is a Rapha promotional video which mixes old Tour de France footage and scenes from the famous Galibier climb that has featured on previous editions of l'etape. This one is relatively short and has some stunning footage of both the famous names that have competed in the Tour de France and one of the most famous mountain climbs that could be included in a future l'etape.  

The second video is a video from the official l'etape du tour web site and is a video featuring some of the highlights of last years "act 1" of l'etape. This is a longer video but it is worth watching all the way through as it really captures what l'etape is all about and gives an idea of the challenge that faces VP.

 As always, thanks for taking the time to visit VP's blog and I hope you can find the time to come back again and share in Velo Pixies journey to l'etape 2013.

All the best for now
