While I had been able to watch the Tour de France during the daytime, it wasn’t the same as being there. But there was an unexpected replacement. I had been in the Viking Museum when a cacophony of sound erupted outside. It was the caravan that precedes a race. Soon after the leading break away came thru.
4 minutes later the peleton came thru with Team Sky leading the bunch..
And finally what seemed like dozens of support vehicles.
Then it was over.
