Today saw the start of the 2013 Tour de France.
For the first time ever the race is visiting and starting in Corsica.
As I sit in the hotel restaurant, taking a pause between courses, the air is filled with French voices discussing Le Tour. One elderly lady does not think it should be in Corsica, “c’est seulement le tour quand il est dans l’hexagone!” She seems to be in the minority though.
Le Tour will visit Brittany, for it’s tenth stage, on Tuesday 9th July and that’s what the locals are really getting excited about! I don’t blame them either, I love Le Tour too!
Shame Cavendish got robbed of Le Maillot Jeune aujourd’hui!
