With Plenty More to Come!

On this Bastille Day, with 13 stages of Le Tour now behind us, the epic cycling event is now two-thirds of the way to its annual grand finish in Paris.  From the raw energy of today’s photo finish, to the unfortunate greater-than-usual loss of 35 riders at this point, the ongoing excitement of such remarkable sportsmanship carries the 99th Tour de France into its third and final week, with plenty more fantastic stage finishes like these to come!

With the climbs of the Pyrenees next up, closer and closer these 163 remaining professionals come to their grand and well-deserved finale.  Before long we’ll once again be enjoying the Champs-Elysees!
