Sounds like a great trip!!
It was the best. I have since realised that I missed Senior Home Internationals while I was away, which is a bit of an oops. Well done on your recent races :)
This sounds pretty ace, a level or 2 up from watching TdY. A good racing spectacle to watch on TV, but some of the speeds/cadences maintained looked pretty ridiculous....
Yeah it was something really special, especially to see Contador in his final race. I've been to the TdF before but actually riding the stages made it that much cooler! I cannot believe the ease with which they climb, but at t least on a few of the days they had the decency to look knackered.
I've only done TdF when it started here, that was a good day out on Holme Moss.
I made a cycling-fan friend at work jealous with your photos :)
Glad to be of service :). Nic I can't imagine what having the TdF in your home country would be like, so exciting! The TdU is exciting enough!
