Saddle time for today – 7 hours 20 minutes

Saddle time cumulative – 97 hours 25 minutes

Today was another hot transition stage towards the Alps.  Fairly uneventful until one of my two ride buddies got a bit too hot near the end of the stage.  I hope he recovers well this evening.  The road was pretty good, lots of Tourmac and some really enjoyable fast descents.
