Luchon to Tarascon

Our longest day of the tour started early out of Luchon and our hardest climb of the day came after 10 miles. A very tough Col de Mente was awaiting us for a 9 mile trek up a mainly 10% grade. Next up was the col des Aspet where we passed the monument for the young Italian Olympic champion Fabian Cassertelli, who died there during the 1995 Tour de France. After 90 miles and a few more climbs, we finished in Tarascon with a total of 10,000ft.
