Le Tour de France reached the mainland today and Nice was the venue for the Team Time Trials which brought the crowds out in force.

The Promenade des Anglais has been in party mode for the last four days, awaiting the arrival of the 4th Stage of the 100th Tour de France. Well, the day finally arrived, and Nice certainly did herself proud.

Under glorious blue skies and a real party atmosphere, the Team Time Trials attracted somewhere between 50 and 60,000 spectators, lining the Promenade and the course in general. 

And after all the excitement has died down, there’s more tomorrow as the 5th stage departs from Cagnes-sur-Mer and wends its way through the region. Vive le Tour!
