We were very fortunate to have passes to get into a special viewing area for the Tour de France.
We were right on the Champs-Elysees and could reach out and touch the racers,
if the Gendarmes were not there of course.
It was a full day of events beginning with a parade of floats.
There were numerous sponsors represented. These are just a few of the ones we liked.
Champion Supermarkets sponsored the climber's jersey (above)
while PMU sponsored the sprinter's jersey (below).
