I’m a bit slow off the mark here but I still wanted to share my images of the Tour de France 2012. After I had ridden all over Zurich, I met up with a mate from Australia and was very pleased to be informed that the tour was passing only an hour away from Basel where we were staying. So come Sunday morning we jumped into the car and headed to watch stage 8 of the Tour de France 2012. As most people know, Australian Cadel Evans was the defending champion this year so there was an extra level of excitement watching Cadel go past this year…. especially as at stage 8 he was still in for a chance! Having stayed up late so many nights watching it in Australia with Phil Liggett telling me all about castles and team tactics, having the colour and sounds of the tour in the flesh was amazing. The bikes, of course, were all amazing and there was much fun had deciding which bike I wanted
So enjoy my images of the tour and some of the sights that come along with it.
