The crush of the crowd

Tour obsessed but haven’t been to France to see it in person? Today’s Field Notes (about my trip to the time trial in Annecy last year) will give you some of that actually-there flavor.

By the way, where I was nearly crushed was in the team bus area, away from the racing action. But it’s just as wild there. When the “big heads of state” (to quote Phil and Paul) rolled out at the end of the time trial, the crowd was in a frenzy trying to follow them to the start line.

That was an even bigger crush than mine.
