Armagh to Dublin, 187km
Stage winner: Marcel Kittel (Giant-Shimano)
Aw man! Leaving IRL tomorrow! Last couple of days have been brilliant, wish all 3 weeks were here. Seen many familiar faces. Although I’m like my mum when it comes to remembering names so I’ve been saying “hey man, how are you?” a lot of times… woops. Still recognise the people though. Today was deadly! Great teamwork. Saw the Big Sugar Loaf out in the horizon coming into Dublin. I grew up on the Little Sugar Loaf, which was why I probably didn’t see it, ‘cause it was too little. Long travel but sneaked in a cheeky Guinness at bar (only ½ pint) so all set for Italy!!
