Tour de France 2019: Stage 3 – Binche to Épernay

Bonjour!  The Tour comes back to France! In the beautiful Champagne region – chalky soils and sunny countryside, no wonder the wine fizzes here! The Tour also fizzed again today – with a brilliant ride from Julian Alaphilippe. He is a flamboyant rider – such style and daring. He wears a moustache like a Musketeer and one would imagine rides like one – if we were ever to see a Musketeer on a bike!  However you see it, this man is a breath of fresh air to the sport – he is full of daring and fun. A fab day’s racing with the promise of what’s to come…
