CyclingTips Tour de France Vlog, Episode 8: Caravan chaos and Gilbert’s cows
We’re into the third week and the three of us CyclingTips reporters at the Tour de France are just as tired as the riders. OK, that might be overstating it, but we’re certainly feeling the three weeks we’ve been on the ground covering the race. And that’s why this episode features a few tired faces and yours truly trying to boost my energy levels on a Vittel publicity caravan car.
That’s right, this episode has a little bit of behind-the-scenes action from the rolling party that is the publicity caravan. While I was out waving to roadside fans for 101km, Matt and Shane had their noses in possibly the greatest press buffet of the Tour.
We managed to get into the VIP area, where the champagne flows and Raymond Poulidor gets the best seat in front of the TV. And finally, the three of us, like the riders, welcomed the second rest day where we ended up wandering around the beautiful city of Le Puy-en-Velay.
We hope you enjoy.
