Village du Tour à Nice

Had a quick visit to the village du tour which is staying in Nice for the Corsica stages. Thought i'd post a few photos just to add a little ambience. My phone was out of space for photos pretty quick, so i missed a bunch of stuff, but here's what i got. First of all, i rode by wednesday's depart in Cagnes sur mer the other day on my commute and took a photo of this :

but love can be a bitch, she's already moved on and found a better ride. Meanwhile he's left alone thoroughly dejected ...

the love bike's forgotten now and well ... she seems to have found a new man, based on where he's got his hand

and finally, to brag a little about the stuff i got. Someone at work organized a team for us to participate in the amateur TTT they're putting on - we ride the same route as the pros tomorrow. Somehow he convinced the higher-ups to actually buy us kits. Plus we got a jersey for riding the thing. Also got an ag2r bidon for riding two kms on a stationary bike to get donations to do research on some disease. So, voila, the booty for the day ... Untitled

so happy tour everyone - hopefully the rest will go better than today's finish
