France June 2008 | Photography Conor Brady
On a trip to the Pyrenees last summer we had the misfortune of hitting the Tourmalet on one of the worst days of the summer. It was covered in cloud, and rivers of rainwater ran down the roads to the top. The true scale of the task was disguised in mist. It was only when passing by the café at the top and looking through a gap in the clouds that you got a true sense of why this is one of the monuments of cycling.
