While vis­it­ing France over the sum­mer, THE BOLD & THE BEAU­TI­FUL star Kather­ine Kelly Lang (Brooke) was de­lighted to be asked to ride along in one of the lead cars dur­ing part of the Tour de France cy­cling com­pe­ti­tion hap­pen­ing at the time. “They flew us in a pri­vate jet to get to a pri­vate he­li­copter to get to a pri­vate car to get to the head of the race,” the avid biker ex­plains. “Then we got to drive along the race for 100 miles. It was a huge VIP ex­pe­ri­ence.” See­ing the course from a lux­ury sedan may have been swell, but Lang also wanted to ex­pe­ri­ence the ter­rain on her own bike, which is why she and her beau, Do­minique Zoida, later ped­aled up Provence’s Mont Ven­toux, a past Tour de France route that’s con­sid­ered a bru­tal climb for even sea­soned cy­clists. Though the moun­tain is nick­named “The Beast Of Provence,” Lang felt it to be any­thing but. “It was the first time we’ve done that moun­tain, and it was re­ally hard, but it was a lot of fun. The views were in­cred­i­ble.”
