As they arrived for their lunch stop in Chambéry, riders received a warm welcome from a crowd of more than 200 supporters including representatives from the local French diabetes association, the mayor’s office and French national TV. Here on the left you can see a photo taken at the lunch stop with team riders and representatives from the local French diabetes associations.
Kyle Jacques Rose, former professional cyclist for Team Type 1, also joined the riders for the afternoon. One of the hardest climbs of the tour was waiting for our dear riders, the “Cold du Semnoz”, which was climbed earlier this year by cyclists taking part in the Tour de France.
Once again, TeamBG riders powered through, showing that people with diabetes can take over any climb, be it from the Tour de France or not!
After this great physical effort, tour riders will enjoy a well deserved rest day today in Voreppe.
