Had not known that bit about 1968. I did know it was a very close race, 5 riders had a reasonable chance to podium go into the last day.

that was great thanks. Imagine a 467Km stage (290 miles) I am assuming this was done across a few days. I remember years ago reading a funny article on how the riders would have a cigarette to fortify the lungs before climbing a mountain stage during the early days of the tour
