….you didn’t know about !!
There’s a lot you can learn about tour organisation when you are talking to some of the biggest names in international cycling. Especially when you’re talking to Sean Yates, stage wins in both the Tour de France and La Vuelta. Sean is now Sports Director at Team Tinkoff and I caught up with him at the Volta Algarve earlier this year. We talked about our Charity Cycle Event in Portugal for the British Heart Foundation and watched Alberto Contador blast around the TT course.
GREAT TOURS are born at the most unlikely of moments….
….. climbing up Montejunto, in fact the last two kilometres. You know, the bit where you can see the summit but the road decides to kick up to 14%. It’s as if you had found the previous 40 minutes too easy and you needed a challenge! That’s where this tour was born.
