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 :
lots of stands - selling stuff usually, also some charitable causes - here's some tour magazines and yellow umbrellas
and more reading material - Mickey!
and now some that actually roll, cute kid
a side by side tandem
the love tandem
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
at least she seems happy now
cute hat girl again
and for our brit friends, there's always next year ...
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 ...
so happy tour everyone - hopefully the rest will go better than today's finish
