Tour de France 2016

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”.

blog-willieWe 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.

We will be there again in 2017, in the French Alps, so if you want to join us , we can organize a trip  cycling, TDF, MTB   visit or contact
