Welcome to the 2015 Tour de France hosted by your Tour de France cycling legend, Phil Anderson. This trip will celebrate the Alpes: Climb and ride as you wish, while focusing on the tour and all the delights that France has to offer the discerning cyclist. As always with Phil Anderson Cycling Tours, our rides are challenging but our accommodation and dining experiences are first-rate.We start our Assault of the Alpes with some preparation training on a must do climb, the Giant of Provence; visible from hundreds of kilometres away, the white sepulchre of Ventoux is an essential destination for the pilgrimaging cyclist. Following a few days in Provence, we’ll head north to witness the final few stages of le Tour and to tackle l’Alpe d’Huez, Col du Glandon, Col du Granier, and Col de la Croix de Fer.
Unlike the tumultuous start to the 2014 Tour de France, we should see all the favourites make it to the Alpes after the peloton’s short foray into the Pyrenees. The eventual winner will have to stamp his authority on every climb in the Alpes. It could be Froome, Contador, Nibali, or a new challenger who is nipping at the heels of the current legends.
