It was one evening of spectacle prestigious to discover, which started from the quays on the terrace of the Rohan Palate. The 22 teams, made up of 9 runners, had embarked on high-speed motorboats which descended passed from the European Parliament to the Museum of Modern art. There was the sound of the brass bands disseminated on the course. They had marked a solemn halt on the scene with the colours of the Tour, installed on the terrace of the Rohan Palate, where they were presented individually at the public by the official announcer of the Tour, Daniel Mangeas.

    This is one of the few sport events that my father watches. I only wish there would be a bit more crowd control, especially in the mountains.

    Yet another win by an American! Too bad Ullrich was DQ'd, he would have had a great chance this year.
