Tour de France


Here are a couple pictures from the Tour de France in July 1995 at Place de la Concorde. I had just arrived for my second tour of duty and it was free, so we went to check it out. Both pictures were taken from where we stationed ourselves. The first picture is of some spectators from our vantage point. The second is the actual race. During our time at our staked out spot there first were a bunch of advertising trucks that circled the route. Then the cyclists came by and did seven laps up and down the Champs Elysee. Other than seeing them wizz by on the cobblestones, we had no real idea what the positioning was in the race.
