Le Dauphine

After our ride up the Forclaz, we went back to Annecy to see the Dauphine finish up. As soon as we arrived on course, the caravan came through and threw sausages at us so we knew it was going to be a good time. We watched the race from the 300 m to go spot and tried to stay out of the rain. It was great to see Vino come through for the win and the home crowd seemed happy to have Moreau get the overall.

As you can see from the pictures, we did our best to try and stalk some pro riders. Bradley Wiggins got away from me as soon as I took his picture but we caught up to the Astana team soigneurs and Jessica convinced them to let her hold some victory flowers for a picture. If you look closely, you can see Vino's helmet in that old guy's left hand. After the race we headed back to the hotel where Mavic was having some kind of press event for the launch of their new wheelset. A few Saunier Duval riders were in attendance but we were too tired to hassle them.

I just want to point out that no, I am not greasy, nor have the Astura guys wet their pants. It was raining at the end of the race.

Let the record show. ;-)
