It’s the first rest day for the Tour de France, and I thought I would give you a bit of an update on what has been happening. I won’t go in to too much detail, because if you wanted it, you’re already following along on someone else’s Tour blog (hopefully mine!).
Franco Cancellara took the step up to be Tour leader on the first day, winning the Time Trial around the streets of London. Amazingly, he only just lost it at the end of stage 7 after some fantastic riding that kept him in touch with the peloton throughout the intermediate stages leading up to the climbs.
