A Visit to the Tour de France, Part IV

Having picked up our Club Tour de France bracelets we set out to find good vantage points and the Club. Exploring the arrival route in Briancon we eventually came to the Club.

Whoa! What a surprise!! The Club Tour de France is right at the FINISH LINE! How incredible is that? I have to tell you, it was mind bending being right at the finish. Not only that, during the course of the afternoon I met Tour de France winners Bernard Hinault, Greg LeMond (again!), Bernard Thevenet, and Joop Zoetemeik, and also Tour Director Christian Prudhomme. When you are just an average cycling guy it doesn't get any better than this. Well, meeting some of the famous podium girls was entertaining as well....
