A stage win on the long road to Paris

Much like the Tour de France itself, the battle for the job to cover Le Tour for CyclingTips is waged on many fronts, over many days, and is open to the best competitors from all over the world. In an endurance event such as this, it's important to measure your effort and make sure you have plenty left in the tank for a strong finish.

Of course, it's also fun to go out hard and race for a stage win once an a while, which is exactly what we did in yesterday's post.

Our efforts were rewarded when CyclingTips featured us in their Rocacorba Daily:

Our 15 seconds of fame

We are truly honoured to see our Strava Art grace the pages of such a fine publication. And whilst we're buoyed by the taste of success so early in our campaign, we must follow the lead of our cycling heroes and remain focused on the fight for overall victory. After all, just as being a hot-shot sprinter will only ever see you in the Maillot Jaune for the first week of the Tour, fancy Strava Art alone will not be enough to get us to Paris wearing yellow.

To this end, for the rest of the week we will be concentrating on the core disciplines of this contest: writing, photography, videography and, of course, knowing how to have fun on tour!

Stay tuned for another update tomorrow. Until then, keep pedalling!
