Grand Depart in Düsseldorf

So here we are, this is the big event! The Tour de France 2017 is in Dusseldorf and now it starts! The first etape attracts many spectators to the circuit. The weather could be better. However, weather is normal and always there, so that’s it. The athmosphere along the circuit is really excellent.

Allez allez allez!

I was impressed by the logistics – every driver has two heavy motorcycles in front of him, a German policeman on one side and a French policeman on the other. Then the driver himself, driving next to him another motorcycle with cameraman, an accompanying vehicle from the team with spare wheels, and another car, perhaps from the tour. Even without expert knowledge and deep insights into the who and why, watching this show today has been fun.

Looking forward to tomorrow!
