The Tourmalet - A Hundred Years of Climbing

Over the many years I have attended the Tour de France I have been aware there is a problem.

Morez in the Jura from the 50's and Merckx topping out first in 1969 and the great Scotsman Robert Millar besting all in 1989. But most of all I will be looking again for one of the those unforgettable experiences that I can store away just like all those other Tourmalet memories.  My bet is that I will find it once again on the upper reaches of the Toumalet.  It will be both about how I got there on my bicycle and what I witnessed and shared with others.  Pretty much like all life, except at elevation.
