Watching the Tour with Dad TDF19-45
The crowds along nearly every kilometer of the Tour have been both huge and orderly. I just loved this father holding his son so that he could get a good look at the peloton as it climbed by. Today is Bastille Day (celebrating French Independence) and I am sure Dad wanted to show his son a Frenchman wearing the Maillot Jaune (the last time that happened was in 2011). Michael Morkov, Enric Mas and Dries Devenyns were escorting their leader (and race leader) Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick Step) along the race course on a relative day off. A large break was up the road that didn't threaten his lead even slightly.
