Video: Day 20 of Paul Kimmage’s Tour de France diary
Published 19/07/2013 | 11:57
IN the latest insightful video diary from journalist Paul Kimmage, he focuses on the iconic Alep D’Huez stage which was no friend to Irish riders Dan Martin or Nicolas Roche yesterday.
Kimmage recalls barely finishing the stage on his first attempt in 1986 – and not knowing whether to “laugh or cry” as he knew he would have to get back on the saddle the following day.
He also recalls seeing one of his good friends – who later committed suicide – battling for a stage win with Greg LeMond in 1990.
