The Tour is coming, quick start the bus!

So we are off! A bus was the star of the day, smashing the sprint, ok the sprint sign and never actually under it. It might be a bit of a shambles for the first stage – Le Grande Depart – but that just makes me like it more. The infamous jittery start was as always more of an issue, seeing Cavendish et al losing out at a chance of an historic start to their respective Tours. Not to be for them but, someone had to win. Marcel Kittel was that man. A small mark on the history of the Tour and a big mark for his career. That man has one sharp German Techno hair cut. Lucky man, for the win, not the haircut. I’m still a bit unhappy there isn’t a Prologue… Tomorrow is another great day on Corsica’s beautiful landscape, lets hope that it’s the sprinters and not a bus [stuck under the finish line sign] getting the attention then. Green Edge might be wondering why their Air-Con isn’t working too.
