Tour photos: Prologue in London and Canterbury stage

Finally back in Finland, I start by publishing the photos from the Tour. The prologue photos aren’t that great, my compact camera just didn’t cope with the speed the riders had at the Serpentine. The light conditions were really challenging too. In Canterbury it was much easier to get good pics.

Christophe Moreau

Christophe Moreau (AG2R, FRA), the French favourite.

Michael Rogers

Michael Rogers (T-Mobile / AUS)

Canterbury caravan

The Tour Caravan arrives to Canterbury. I like the Credit Lyonnais Lion-car!

Citroens

Can you find a more stylish limousine?

Tired champion

This champ is Tired. Why can’t those stupid cyclists speed up?

Milram train

The Milram train is right on schedule, but a bit short.

Canterbury sprint

The winner Robbie McEven’s black helmet in the middle in about tenth position. 600 meters, and he takes the stage.

Canterbury sprint

The bunch passes in a horrendous speed. The big Discovery guy is probably George Hincapie, a rider with the same age, height and weight as me. Good guy, that.

Canterbury sprint

Giving it all. Got to catch the ferry to Dunkirk.

David Zabriskie

David Zabriskie (CSC / USA)  had a troubled Tour with feet problems.

Unlucky Mark Cavendish

Cedric Hevre (Agritubel / FRA) leads the unlucky Mark Cavendish (T-Mobile / GBR), who as a home favourite had a fall twenty kilometres before goal. Stéphane Auge (Cofidis / FRA) follows. 

Happy spectator

Yes, I’m there! Next day I got a haircut.

Liquigas Cannondale

The Cannondale bikes of team Liquigas are really great looking.
