Tour de France 2016: Stage 7 – L’Isle-Jourdain to Lac de Payolle

Bonjour! Stage 7 was dramatic! This stage was the first of three mountain stages in the Pyrenees and included the Tour favourite, Col d’Aspin at the end of a long day of climbing. The weather and scenery were glorious but the story of the race was glorious too – for Stephen Cummings, who astounded fans with his first stage win last year, (click here to see) took the race by the scruff of the neck and led a one-man breakaway with 25km to go. Champion rider, Vincenzo Nibali gave chase but there were 45 seconds between them at one point. It was Steve’s day and no-one could catch him!  Here are my drawings:
