Rapha news from the Etape
Team Rapha tell us that they had an amazing day at the Etape on Monday. All eight riders finished in under 8 hours after struggling over the Marie Blanque and Aubisque climbs with 8000 other riders.
Next Tuesday, July the 19th, the Tour covers the same roads on stage 16 and Rapha is inviting all 'etapistes' to join them to watch the stage 'for real' live in central London.
From 12.00 noon until 22.00pm Rapha will be showing live coverage of the stage on a big screen at the Offside Gallery in Islington. As well as watching the stage, visitors can see a unique exhibition of Lance Armstrong photographs from the Equipe archives. The gallery has a bar and café. Entrance is free.
