Tour de France - The Angel


The greatest cycling race in the world, the Tour de France, starts in Monaco on the 4th July. It has passed through Monaco before but never started here. A great honour for the Principality.

In Rue Princesse Caroline, the pedestrian street, 20 artists have created works to mark the event.

Look up, and you see this creation by Véronique Champollion.

Ooh, how exciting for it to start there! I love the idea of the artworks and this particular one is so whimsical and fun!

Hope you'll show the others. AND the race!

I was lucky enough to be in Montpellier one year for the TDF and got to photograph it. This is such a fun image. Sums up the difference for me of how the TT is treated here to how the TDF is there. I am most definitely in the wrong place.

Excellent pics! I grew up with the Tour, they passed in front of our house in the Alps every year when I was a kid. And guess what? I am living in Barcelona now, and they will pass... in front of my house again on July 9th! Like being a kid again! Can't wait!
