What a week that was. There are other blogs, tweets, facebook postings, websites etc that can and will give you a terrific analysis of the 2014 TdU.
This isn’t one of them.
I’d like to try to portray some of the excitement and passion exhibited by the fans, the organisers and the riders over the last week, and have posted a few ramblings over the last week. This posting include some photos from Saturdays Willunga Hill stage and Sundays city stage. I have been setting up early on top of the hill for the last 4 years, and this years crowd was the biggest yet. Some estimates have over 550,000 people on top of the hill. Unbelievable. All I can say is that if you haven’t experienced the crowds on a Saturday afternoon, you really do not know what you are missing out on. Do yourself a favour and in 2015, Nike.
Seeds of a plan have been planted for a combined Velo Porte Wednesday Legs event on top of the Old Queen next year. Watch this space.
Anyway, here goes.
