    Well, yesterday's stage featured protests by some disgruntled French farmers (..nothing new there ) that were staged along the roadside as the riders passed.

    It was dealt with by the police using tear gas, which unfortunately affected the riders as well and the race had to be stopped for several minutes while they recovered!

    It looks like Thomas 1st & Froome 3rd.
    Our beauty is our power, our strength. We can’t allow them to change us, to lessen us. I will never grant them that satisfaction, and neither should you!

    No Mark Cavendish this year.

    I was expecting this but it just won't be the same without the event's greatest-ever sprinter

    July 14th is a highly symbolic date in France and to have a French rider (Julian Alaphilippe) wearing the Yellow Jersey on this day has created quite an atmosphere for stage 9!

    We're now down in the south-west and heading for the Pyrenees (..a beautiful part of the world!)

    There's a rest day tomorrow, and then it becomes a battle of attrition up in the mountains with searing temperatures.

    Yesterday the Tour was in Toulouse A lot of great scenery and history in this region and I watched all 170+ kilometers of the race, which culminated in another very close sprint finish ...
