Day 3 of our Alpe d’Huez to Italy tour took us from our overnight stay in Briançon to Pinerolo in Italy via the Col de Montgenevre and the Colle di Sestriere. The day includes a 50km descent from the top of Sestriere to Pinerolo where Voeckler had his lucky escape in the 2011 Tour de France.
Day 4 is a rest day on this tour but day 5 tackles the Col d’Agnel the highest point of our tour and also that of the 2011 Tour de France.

I am a website designer. Recently, I am designing a website template about gate.io. The boss’s requirements are very strange, which makes me very difficult. I have consulted many websites, and later I discovered your blog, which is the style I hope to need. thank you very much. Would you allow me to use your blog style as a reference? thank you!
