Tour de France 2015: Stage 7 – Livarot to Fougères

Bonjour! Stage 7 saw another lovely sunny day, the route through the Normandy fields on into Brittany, was lined with fans all the way. Daniel Teklehaimanot was part of the leading group for a great part of the day and retained the Polka Dot jersey. For British fans, the joy came from seeing the huge smile on the face of Mark Cavendish after he charged past the sprinters to take his first TDF stage win for 2 years and No.26 in total. He’s after the all-time record for stage wins and this brought him a little closer! This was a great day’s racing. Here are my drawings:
