Oh and the start is in France by the way, in Nîmes to be exact. Do turn on your TV, I can tell from experience that Nîmes has some truly beautiful sights (especially the Roman arena) :)

Too bad that they're replacing the archeological museum with this futuristic horror of a 'modern architecture' building, right next to the arena..

I can understand why they chose Nîmes for the postcard thing, but from a crowd perspective, it'is going to be rough. Cycling ends in July here.

Oh well, it's a 13km team time trial, that's not going to be a ton of fun anyway :p 

 

(team time trials should be way, way, way longer)

Once, your top favorite GC rider's team is not also the favorite team to win a TTT, I'll agree :rolleyes:

 

Same with ITT, really.

Like now, I doubt BMC and Quick-Step, the two top favorites for the TTT win, have the top favorite GC contender :p  (not like there's one big GC favorite anyway)

I loved the "Féria" It was great, everyone singing and dancing in the streets the whole night and forcing me to drink some weird red thing with a lot of fruits inside, later they said me that it´s the local Sangria.

 

And for the first time in my life I saw a bull in front of me on the street. I´ll never forget this moment :d
