I already knew I had gone too far Wednesday, but the aftermath (evening, including dinner) was just fine, as was my night.
I slept like a baby until I woke up at just past 4 am for a toilet break and the lights went out when I got out of bed…
I’ll keep it short, but suffice it to say, it put a lid on stage 13, which would have been short as we needed time to pack things up too.
That stage was therefor planned to get up to Les Karellis.
Although originally intended to be combined / extended with Col d’Albanne, that plan was already off the table after Wednesday’s massacre.
But now, even the short stage was cancelled.
Despite my experience, I had managed to get past my breaking point and not recover from it until the next day.
We went for some sightseeing by car and I even got back to Valfréjus to pick up a souvenir.
Now, the question is: do I dare to ride a stage 13 tomorrow, on Friday the 13th?
I think I’ll stick to my usual “Epilogue”, IF it even takes place 😂
