It's been a tad warm for the Transpyrenees riders during this first day of racing. While the mercury rose and sun beamed down on the tarmac, two German riders (#15 Ulrich Bartholomoes and #8 Christoph Fuhrbach) took it all in their stride and managed the first 500km and 13 cols in less than 24 hours!
The fight for current third position jostles between a number of riders: #38 Clémont Clisson, #42 Mitchell Luke* and #43 Chris Hinds.
You can see details of the route and the climbs the riders have covered so far here. The biggest is yet to come!
*Mitchell Luke is actually listed as Luke Mitchell on the tracker.
