Think the French aren’t passionate about their cycling and racing? Think again! Even the farmers in the region the Tour is passing through got together for an unbelievable display of support.
Not only did this take an enormous amount of scaling, planning, coordination & work from a lot of people but it was done exclusively for the TV cameras in the helicopters. The riders nor the en_tour_age [carefully chosen word] in the cars can even see it from ground level!
I’ve been watching the Tour de France for several years, and although one always sees unique and interesting monuments, sculptures, field art, etc. along the road this one is by far the best and most imaginitive I can ever recall seeing.
