I was originally gunning for any Etape that was going to take place in the Pyrenees, since this year's was in the Alps (for me at least), but in a fit of insanity (or over-estimation of my abilities...or both) I thought about giving both a shot. The two are 6 days apart, so plenty of time to recover, plus I live in the south of France, so that helps with logistics and costs (i.e. I can go home in between).
I'm a bit concerned, since, especially in the case of Act Two, the distance and elevation gain is a big step up from this year, and Act One was probably the hardest thing I've ever done in my life.
But hey, we aren't getting any younger and my knee isn't getting any better, that's for sure. Bring it on (but have the broom wagons there, just in case...)!
