A Visit to the Tour de France, Part VI

Preceding the riders by about two hours along the route is the "caravan" to entertain the crowds. Quite the spectacle.

Finally, the lead riders arrived in Briancon. The 24 year-old Colombian Soler won by 38 seconds and gave his Barloworld team a huge boost after arriving at the Tour de France via a wildcard invite. He literally flew towards the finish line, incredibly fast.

My thanks to Eros for making my first visit to the Tour de France an incredible experience.
