coming around the bend

Here's a better view of the riders in the recent race in downtown Amboise.  They've slowed down to make the U-turn on this "out and back" circuit.  Meanwhile the Tour de France continues with stage 6 today in northern France.


  1. Super shots Stuart, have been keeping my eye on the T de F, that's a tough one!

  2. Even for non-cyclists like me watching a race from the side of the road is exciting. The TdF (and golf championships) must be the last world class sporting event where spectators are allowed so close to competitors, often without barriers.

    1. Sometimes too close. But yes, I've seen them go by in Onzain and Tours (for about 30 seconds each) and it is really exciting to see up close.
