TdF Stage 3 – Rolling Into The Capital [Spoilers]
Watched from Upper Thames Street. Good atmosphere, dampened by the rain, not helped by the late start and delay on the expected arrival. without one or the other it would have been grand!
Great fun, though. We nipped in and out of the pub from half 1ish, watched the peleton flash past, then the team cars and the backmarkers no more than a minute or so behind, back to the office 60 seconds’ walk away and came through the door to see the reception telly showing the final turn and the sprint up the Mall. Pretty swift trip through central London!
Amazing finish from Kittel, hit the front from so far out.

Not long since broken his collarbone, elbows out on wet roads? Meh!
Kittel was ridiculous really, they couldn’t even come round ‘im. Next flat stage will be Giant/Shimano’s to control start to finish, why bother putting a man on the front when Kittel is that strong.Posted 3 years agomrhoppySubscriber
Possibly, but he was nowhere on Saturday as well even before the crash. Kittel’s a monster (which is why he’s in my team) but the rest of the sprinters seem pretty average, I was expecting a 3 way drag race between the 2 big Germans and can, as it is you could see kittel taking 6 stages or so this year.Posted 3 years agostanfreeMember
I had a great day in Cambridge and London yesterday , the crowd in Cambridge was unbelievable but sadly couldn’t get a decent viewpoint in London . Still a great day and easily one of the best Grand Departs ever. Despite living near Edinburgh I’m glad Yorkshire , Cambridge and London got the depart as It’s hard to see how this could have been better supported.
Also It has to be said that Cambridge is a beautiful city and I will return.
Good to see from the above poor quality pic the faces of excited schoolkids and City Bankers enjoying the occasion.Posted 3 years ago
