Well what a start to the 2015 tour, great coffee and pastries, perfect weather and lake Annecy at its sparkling best. Despite fatigue from jet lag, everybody rode superbly and were rewarded with first class French omelettes at the Semnoz summit restaurant. The views here of Mt Blanc are some of the very best and today was exceptional. Dinner in the charming old village, surrounded by the energy of Bastille day eve, capped off the perfect day.
Tomorrow we head out over the col de la croix fry and col des aravis, should be another spectacular cycling experience. Bring on the 14th of July and we will celebrate along with the rest of France, should be a day for the ages and I cannot wait.
