As we drive through the pea soup thick fog on one of our 5 time trials yesterday, that was after the pouring rain, I said to Gunther,
“All we need is some snow to finish this off”
Well guess what? Last night it snowed. In July, in Saint Moritz where we were headed.
Some friends met us in St Moritz for a lovely surprise and everything is revving up for the last push.
The dramas continue. One navigator walked out last night to leave his poor driver to go it alone yesterday and radiators boil over with the mountain passes and brakes are smoking. Tilly drives on and we are counting down the kilometers. Lausanne tonight, Reims tomorrow night then Paris. I think there will be a few tears shed.
