Summit of Mont Ventoux

It was up and over Mt. Ventoux in the company of Andy Schleck and Alberto Contador (#1 and yellow jersey). It is one of the toughest climbs and Lance had the legs to stay with riders more than 10 yrs younger than himself. It was an amazing performance as I viewed it on OLN with one hour of uninterrupted TV streaming from the bottom to the top of Mt. Ventoux.

Here’s the front part of the peloton on Stage 6:

And then there is this image of Jens Voigt after a serious tumble off his bike on the race down the Petit Col St-Bernard. Out of the Tour:

And to contrast here is the yellow jersey on the same stage, Alberto Contador!
