The Tour de France hasn't had a mention yet so here's a brief snapshot of stages 11 and 12.......from your correspondant in a roadside ditch.

Or hydraulic lines as many are using disc brakesClick on #1 and go large, you'll see the cables.
Would you trust your life to a battery operated brake systemOn a lot of the bikes I cannot see any brake and gear cables are they hidden in the bars and frame or are they being controlled electronically
The two stages passed close to where I live so it was a good chance to savour a little bit of culture. Alas I know nothing about bikes so I'm going to have to rely on others to answer that one.Great it must be wonderful to be there .Now you might be able to answer me a question.

You can't beat a good ditch, Asha. I did use my Pentax 645Z for the caravan shots but I'm not adept enough with it for the more instantaneous action.
Good to clearly see that you're alive and well Bob.......fit enough to be scrambling into ditches lol
Nice set, I saw them over this side when they were on the outskirts of Nice but they had whizzed past by the time I got my accordion ( LF kit) set up
Thanks Paul. My attempts at local races have also been disappointing. Club cyclists seem to ride a peleton with far more distance between the riders and this detracts from the drama (IMO)Loving the dynamic POV and energy in the images.
I tried this on our local Cycle race in 2018 with poor results.
Very hard to get uncluttered clean backgrounds.
Thanks Paul. My impression was that the event was a little flat this year and that was down to the absence of the "tour addicts". Attendance was limited as it was no longer in the holiday period and a much larger proportion of the spectators were the more sedate over-60's. On the two days that I visited, the overall ambiance was muted although my "winnings" from the caravan exceeded those of the previous 8 or 9 visits combined.well personally i think you have an epic picture there mate, an absolute gem, i am a tour addict.
