After following the Tour from Toulouse, I got to recognise the people setting up the 'Arrivee' area, So on Sunday I approached the directeur Jean Luc Pages and complemented him on a job well done. He asked me where I was going to stand, when I said up on the Champs somewhere he gave me a VIP pass with access to all the press and guest areas. So after a free lunch I watched the finish right on the line (beside the silver ball that houses the commentator). I met Eddy Mercxx, Sean Kelly, Phil Liggett and Bobke. After suffering through traffic jams across the Pyrenees and the rain in Nantes I can tell you that it topped of my trip to perfection! I didn't get to meet Lance, but I did speak to Chris Carmichael and Robin Williams for a bit. So the moral I guess is it's nice to be nice!
