On 21 July I will cycle L'etape du Tour, 135 kms from Albertville to Val Thorens, with 4563m of climbing https://www.letapedutour.com. It will feature as stage 20 of the Tour de France. Like many of the other 15000 riders I will do it for charity, raising funds for the Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism. The Fund was set up in memory of Lénaïc Vaudin d’Imécourt to provide a fellowship to recently graduated female students from an EU country interested in kick-starting their career in EU journalism http://lenaic.eu. This is my way of honouring the memory of Lénaïc.
