Tour de France 2009

Was going to watch the Stage 5 finish at Perpignon but was told it would be difficult getting in and that would need to be there meag-early.

So, decided to watch the riders speed through Argeles, 24 km from the finish. We got there fairly early and the route was already rammed with spectators but we managed to get a spot on the turning point before one of the round abouts.

Joe took up his position on my shoulders and managed to get some photos as the break away riders sped past and also a good one of Lance and some of the Astana riders coming past.

Really enjoyed the afternoon – watching the promotions caravan pass through then the riders who belt out a tremendous pace and manage to stay upright.

Can’t wait to watch the rest of the Tour and to see who will win……
