It’s hard to believe it’s six days since we rolled out of the campsite in Val d’Isére not sure of what to expect, and set off on the 2015 Trans-Savoie journey. Friday was the day that the week’s efforts and frustrations got their rewards. All the exertion, the skill and the bravery crudely broken down into hours, minutes and seconds. And the guy that ruled the steepest tracks and the gnarliest terrain was the guy from close to Strasbourg in France, Nico Lau, and it’s been a pleasure to see him and the rest of the top riders tackling all of the stages this week.
