Up early for a relatively shot ride down a beautiful valley towards Leige culminating in a hard ride ride up the Cote de la Redoute, which was brutal (20%) for over 2 Kms.
Then onto the bus into Lieges for the prologue. We inflated our Kangaroos and joined the 200,000 spectators. The Roo proved to be extremely popular!. We had our pictures taken by hundreds of people, we were interviewed by Chinese TV, the local news paper and La Mond asked to interview us on camera for its website. I politely declined because my spoken French is merd.
Had a great day and avoided sun burn and at the end of the race, we saw Cadel start, apparently there is an excellent shot of our Roos which should be on SBS immediately before he goes off. However, Tim was not attractive enough for TV so they cut his head off.
All in all it was a sensational day.
