TdF 2021

Postby Canuck » Sun 25 Jul 2021, 5:09 pm

No talk of it here....

Didn’t watch as much as I would have liked, but just too busy or other.

But introduced the Boy to it this year in updates. On today’s bike ride he declared that he would like to travel to watch Le Tour one day. :D

I suggested for now we could maybe aim for Tour Down Under trip one year....

Did this with my son in 2010.
One of the best holidays we ever had. We hired a car and camped, mostly in what they called municipal camp sites.
French hospitality was great. As a bonus we were there during the World Cup as well so got to watch some great football in French pubs.

It's also hard to beat the scenery over there. France is such a beautiful country.

Here's a photo from my 2019 cycling trip in the French Alps, taken from col de l'Iseran, the highest sealed road in the European Alps, at 2764m, and looking east :

So nice.

As for the race, the GC winner was pretty much in the bag by the end of the first week.
But otherwise, great riding from Ben O"Connor.
And WVA winning a high mountain stage, an ITT and a sprint stage, that's out of this world.
