Tour de France 2017: Stage 1 – Düsseldorf

Hello! The opening stage of 2017 Tour de France took place on a very wet day in Düsseldorf. It was an individual time trial for all riders around the city. In spite of the rain, spirits and expectations were high and the fans were out steadfastly in the rain for hours, supporting the riders. This first picture shows the umbrellas lining the course and one very cautious rider picking his way through the puddles!
