An almost clear sky at sunrise was a nice change from the previous rainy day as Martin Fourcade and three friends set out at 8 am on an out-and–back cycling tour of almost 100 km through the Pyrenees. The planned trip from Argeles Gazost to the top of the Gavarnie Col de Tentes at 2208 meters would be Fourcade's second big cycling tour of high peaks in the past four days. Just three days prior, he had cycled about 90 km to the top of the legendary Col du Tourmalet, just a day after the Tour de France had passed over one of the hardest climbs of the 23-day event.

Ahead is a solitary 19K uphill trek to Lac d'Estaing, climbing from 460 meters to 1163 meters, followed by a fast downhill through rural France on a single lane road; just another day at the summer office for the top-ranked biathlete in the world.
