The Ronde des Ecureuils is an important race on our calendar that tours a small part of the region, taking in a tough rolling parcours starting & finishing in the town of Casteljeloux, which also happens to be not far from where I lived when I first moved to France.
Did a 70km Team Time Trial today as I got myself into the early break of 8 that made it all the way to the finish – along the way I also got a couple of 2nd place prime prizes in some of the towns we went through.
Just did not have the legs to follow the attacks on the last couple of climbs at the end as the breakaway began attacking each other. And so finished a little behind the winners, but still in front of the bunch.
I’m getting there, but still have a way to go…
Bravo Neil Asquie on you victory and happy 26th birthday!
