By noon today, we had accomplished quite a bit and Terry was off to the airport. I woke up to the alarm to watch La Course, the women's race on the Champs-Elysees before the men finished up the Tour de France. Anna van der Braggen attacked on the last lap and won a 2nd title for Rabo-Liv, following in the steps of Marianne Vos. Despite the weather, the crowds looked impressive and social media was hopping. The women gave it their all on extremely slick roads and I appreciate their effort, I just wish so many didn't go down with bike and body injuries.
We watched the start of the Tour de France while Terry wrapped up some work, then headed out for our own ride after watching all the racing. They had rain in Paris, but not in Park City. There wasn't a cloud in the bluest of skies and the sun was starting to heat things up. We kept our eyes peeled for pros, but must have been out too early. Terry saw several on his ride yesterday afternoon, as they are here acclimating for Tour of Utah.
Home in time to watch the last lap of the Tour de France while Terry showered and packed. Andre Greipel won the stage, while Chris Froome stayed out of trouble and went home in yellow for the 2nd time. I can't wait until the women have a longer stage race that gets the media coverage the men do. Small steps like today's La Course show there is hope. I'm positive it will happen in my lifetime.
