Stage 9: Arc-et-Senans to Besançon

Hello from beautiful France.

Today was a great day, especially because I got to watch some amazing talent fly by on TT bikes.

We stopped in Abbans-Dessus, a town along today’s route, and watched the riders climb past.

We didn’t take a lot of pictures as we were cheering most of the time, but we did manage to get a couple of good ones of Chris Froome, Chris Horner and Edvald Boasson Hagen.

The atmosphere was incredible–“Allez, allez, allez” was all you could hear as TT bikes zoomed past. “Allez Les Rosbifs!” came out once it was Froome’s and Wiggin’s turn to come past.

After a long day of spectating, I had an amazing dinner of snail casserole, chicken in cream sauce and chocolate mousse. No pictures of that, unfortunately.

I hope to be back with more pictures after Wednesday’s and Thursday’s stages.

Au revoir.
Amanda
