I have always been fascinated with the Tour de France. Besides the sport (and the man, Lance Armstrong), the television coverage of the event is probably the toughest among any other sporting events. Yet, it is one of most spectacular coverage showcasing the best of the France (and these days the route ventures out of France too). This was the inspiration behind my trip to the Loire valley to check out the Cheateau of Chambord & Cheateau of Chincaceou. Paris to Tours (Tours is name of the place) by the first class in TGV was another highlight of that trip.

This time I was lucky to witness the last day of the 2500km 3 week race at the Champs-Elysees in Paris. It was a pleasant Sunday and it was fun to catch a glimpse of the last stages of the race amidst the festiv environment. It is not every day that you see people climbing up signal posts and buildings in the heart of Paris!
