We have qualified!
|In our youth in France|
|Training on Wisconsin roads|
We worked vigorously during the year-long pandemic to qualify to compete in the inaugural tandem bicycle event of the Tour de France. It was a long journey to get to this point, but with a lot of training and contacting the right people, we managed to qualify and will participate in the 108th Tour de France starting June 26, 2021.
It all started with a Zoom meeting with the UCI (International Cycling Union) president, David Lappartient. Since he lives in Switzerland, we had to consider not only the time difference for our meeting, but the best place to set up our stationary tandem bicycle in our living room equipped with cameras and timers to demonstrate not only our skill and speed, but our utter determination.
