It was around 2003 when I was first discovering road cycling that I remember watching Lance Armstrong leading a (primarily drug-fuelled) peloton up to a summit finish at Station Luz Ardiden. So it was with some excitement last Sunday that we set off up the very same road to that same station from just outside our campsite in Sazos.
