How great was the Tour de France ?
Great race, nice that the podium was decided on the last day. Now if only they would ditch the procession on the last day which has about 30 seconds of excitement. Maybe back to a time trial or better still finish else where with a hill. 😆Posted 4 years ago
Final ceremony about as exciting as a wet day.
Maybe it lost something to telly.butcherMember
Loved it. Froome turned the volume up to 11 and kept it there. Quintana was this year’s Sagan. Sagan was predictably last year’s Sagan but with more wheelies. Cav….what can you say….a lot of bad luck, perhaps? He did get one incredible win though, and entertained as always. Jens Voigt…..ubermensch. Oh, and yes, Kittel. Well done to that guy – well and truly proved himself.
Looking forward to next year.Posted 4 years agoMrsMugsyMember
Just been watching the end with the ceremony and I must say I’m a bit overwelmed.
this edition was pretty goog with some great moments. It was the most wonderful national celebration of a beautiful country.
(sorry, i’m french and for me the tdf is the fête nationale)
a bit disappointed Cav didn’t win. but overall it really does feel like it’s the beginning of a new era.Posted 4 years agolangyladSubscriber
No glorious manx missile on the final day, no sideburns, no post stage expletive honesty, no disobeying team orders, I’ve just got back from work and haven’t seen the podium speech yet but i bet they didn’t sell many raffle tickets. Difficult to live up to last years tour in my eyes, but the coach driver and the Italian dog did liven it up a bit.Posted 4 years ago
Having said that I’ve already picked a spot near Silsden for my tent next year, can’t wait 😀troutSubscriber
Langylad. Ha I live in silsden and wondering where to go and watch on both days
col de Cringles will be manic with the 90 degree left hand corner at the bottom .
All house space is already booked by friends and relatives and probably the lawn for a couple of tents also .Posted 4 years ago
