Tour de France 2016: Stage 1 – Mont-Saint-Michel to Utah Beach Sainte-Marie-du-Mont

Bonjour! How wonderful to be back with Le Tour! Where did the year go? After a grim week in the UK, it was fantastic to lose oneself on the beautiful shoreline of Normandy. The stage was full of thrills, including a dramatic fall for Contador; a nip and tuck breakaway for Alex Howes and Anthony Delaplace but the man who took us all by surprise was Mark Cavendish, who brilliantly took his 27th stage win and his first ever Yellow Jersey! Wow! What a start! Here are my drawings:

    1. Absolutely! Wouldn’t it be great if he did? I think he’s owed a few after the past couple of years. Keep everything crossed! 😁
