- The Tour de France Gets Started
We hope you’re enjoying the first week of the Tour de France.
Garmin-Cervélo fans are no doubt thrilled with the team’s success during the first few days of the race. On this end, it’s been a thrilling start to the race. Watching the guys win the Team Time Trial; then seeing a perfect lead-out help Tyler take the win on Sunday; followed by the remarkable efforts Thor made to hold on to the yellow jersey during Monday’s stage – it’s all amounted to plenty of smiles over here at CB&C.While you’re following the race this week, we thought you might enjoy this piece from Mark Johnson about the Tour de France Kick Off. As Mark points out, in France the race is so much “more than a sports event, the Tour is a ritual marking the true start of summer and the freedom it represents.” The start of summer is always good for generating smiles too.Enjoy Mark’s report from the roads of France.
