Crowds of smiling, happy people lined the streets of Perigueux last Tuesday to greet the start of stage 10 of the Tour de France through Sarlat and on to Bergerac. It was just what Paul and I needed to lighten the mood after we had just received some upsetting news. It lifted our spirits so much so that we began to focus on the positive rather than the negative.
So here are just a few of the many pictures taken last Tuesday.
Sky team bus
The amazing Sky team being presented to an appreciative audience.
Cheers for Chris Froome and the team.
TV interview with the King of the Mountains.
Riders looking relaxed and having a chat before the start of the race.
And off they go.
Second later all the riders were gone, having started on a 178km tour of one of the most beautiful parts of France
So over to our roving camera crew Sherry and Angus who took these brilliant pictures. Thank you so much.
The Caravan runs through Beynac.
They look happy to be here, and who wouldn’t be enjoying the spectacular scenery of the Dordogne valley. Good luck guys.
“Come on Chris Froome”… Just a little bias there,
The Perigord will bring a smile to your faces too.
Event:- 14th July – Fête National, all across France.
