Tour de France 2016, was as good as the previous ones and even better for the SA cyclists staying at Les Saisies resort with FAST. On 22 July the TDF went through Les Saisies village to pass the col des Saisies, after the impressive “ Montee de Bizanne”.
We could even ski that day, as the ESF, organise ski lessons for our FAST team and friends. The resort technical services had kept some snow under wood shaving since April, and it was fantastic moment to see people skiing as the riders of the Tour de France came in the village , in the middle of summer….
The day before 21 july we went to the finish of the Time Trial Sallanches Megeve and could enjoy to see each rider coming through.
And on 23 July all FAST guest get VIP entry to the Village of the Tour , and we all could enjoy to meet and talk the some of the riders, of course Louis Mientjie was the star of the day for us. Of course Peter Sagan, Chris Froom, Roamain Bardet also capture te attention of our cameras.
