Well, whatever the outcome of the Tour, with all the drugtaking scandals, and the leaders being sacked by their team, the spectacle of the Tour passing through the village was marvellous, but brief. Preceded by the caravan, and numerous trucks throwing out free gifts, the cyclists passed by in seconds. The pack was well spread out by the time it got to Monetier, having already climbed the Col d’Iseran, and Col du Telegraphe, so the peleton was quite small. An afternoon outside the bar in the sunshine was not to be sneered at though, although we saw more of the race on the TV.
