Tour de France behind the scenes

Visiting theĀ  Tour de France is the holy grail of any chain crunching bike loving roadie. While I dont consider myself a roadie, as I prefer a little dirt under my tires, I was lucky enough to spend a few weeks in France during July. The Tour de France is bigger than any cycling event I have ever attended. Well actually it is bigger than any event, full stop, that I have attended and that includes Rugby World Cup’s and Kirstenbosch concerts. Now thats saying something. Its flipping huge, every km of road is lined with spectators and entire regions of France shut down when the tour runs through them.

So now you may be thinking, Ok lucky punk, where is this going? Well I didnt forget you guys back home! Here is a little behind the scenes action from the Team Time Trial in Montpellier. Enjoy!
