How strong is the lonely cyclist?

by Susanne Stoop 

It is Tour de France time!

The worlds most prominent stage race for professional cyclists has entered its third week, tiredness takes its toll. Who will take the yellow jersey to Paris after six more gruelling days? The toughest, the smartest, the sprinter or the will to be the strength of the lonely cyclist?

There are by the way more strong lonely cyclists than those brave professionals, as my list will prove. Enjoy!
