Conclusion of the 2016 Tour

Our Tour started with a few famous word – “this will be your fastest Argus yet”. And it held true. We saw a number of personal bests yesterday. We didn’t have a crystal ball to predict the weather. But is wasn’t all about the weather. It was about the hard miles that you have put in during the week. Thanks to all participants in this years’ new-format Tour de Boland. The first of many. We have learned a lot. And enjoyed it even more. Here’s to next time.

Ps, if you have not yet rated your experience, please rate us now.
