Having followed the route of the Tour along most of the route of Stage 15 we managed to leap-frog it at Bagnères-de-Luchon, pressing on in the fading light to find a great camp spot on the top of the Col d’Aspin. Having been woken early by the set up crews we settled in for the wait and spent the morning enjoying the build up. The Caravane came through at about 11.30 and the riders arrived at about 13.00, though this time we were able to see them coming from our elevated position. It took them about 30 minutes to make it up the Col, roughly the same time as it took us to drive!
