Tour de France
We got a greeting for the completion of the Tour de France in Paris with true watch Tissot. While we are not by and large known for being energetic, a few of us do appreciate an exercise every so often. In the middle of work, voyaging, quality time at home and the average Dutch climate (downpour is falling straight down) I end up on a street bicycle now and again doing sporting excursions. Nothing compared to the members in the Tour de France. Spread out more than 22 days they cycle over 3500km on their racing bikes.
The 2016 version of the Tour de France began the second of July in Normandy. From that point the riders went toward the southern piece of France, experiencing the Pyrenees on both the Spanish and France sides of the border. Going however Andorra, the course proceeds towards Switzerland, visiting Berne and afterward returns to the French Alps. From here the whole convoy is shipped to Chantilly for the last stage and customary completion on the Champs Elysées in Paris.
That same Sunday morning we discover our approach to Paris to enjoy the Tour de France with true watch Tissot. In the wake of showing up and looking into our inn around noon, we walk towards the noteworthy , investigating a touch of the last course of the Tour. Staying for a while at the Tissot Boutique on the Champs Elysées where the extraordinary Tissot ‘Tour de France editions‘ are .
Meanwhile the women compete in ‘ ‘, 89 kilometers of laps around the Champs Elysées going around the Place de la Concorde and the Arc de Triomphe.
Later that evening, as the riders of the Tour are beginning their last and last stage towards Paris, the authority program starts for the onlookers. Subsequent to finding our places simply behind the end goal, the parade starts. On the screen we perceive how the main group appreciates a mixed drink during the start of the last stage, clearly a custom in the Tour. In the mean time passing along, before the cyclists show up in Paris, there are 170 decorated vehicles taking all things together shapes, sizes and shadings addressing the patrons. Clearly made in 1930 effectively, the exposure band turned into a fundamental piece of the tour. Giving out a gigantic measure of little treats during the stages. For some individuals it’s even the above all else motivation to come and see the race.
Not a lot later, the riders pass along interestingly. Making the full group cheer like there’s no tomorrow. A great second as 7 planes along simultaneously. Flying over the Champ Elysées leaving a smoke trail in red, white and blue, the shades of the French public banner. Presently the Tour is coming to an end for the riders, just 8 laps of roughly 7 kilometers over cobbles, not the most comfortable street for them.
Jerseys of the Tour de France
During this last stage we see all the popular cycle pullovers pass along. Yellow for the general time leader, worn by Chris Froome who is now champ of the Tour de France. Green for the cyclist with the most elevated number of run focuses awarded during the different phases of the Tour. Depending on the stage (level/medium/high) a specific measure of focuses are rewarded to the principal 10~25 riders. For the ‘ruler of the mountain’ there is the spotted pullover. White with red specks. For the leader in the mountain stages. Last we have the white pullover, essentially equivalent to the yellow one however just accessible for those under 25 toward the start of that years Tour de France.
Slowly the riders pass along over and over, advancing toward the completion. An intermittent accident and punctured tire occurs before our stand. We see the dissatisfaction when one of the riders gets an extra bicycle complete with a punctured tire, losing more significant time.
Final minutes in the Tour de France
On the screen we follow the activity and last meters before the end goal. It’s actually a near fiasco, seconds after the fact we see André Greipel, public boss of Germany, taking the triumph on the last phase of the Tour de France. Very little later the media assumes control over the roads for pictures and meetings before our stand. Soon after followed by the honor ceremony.
After a noteworthy day we discover our way to a close by eatery for supper with any remaining visitors. Completing the day with an engaging show at the Lido around midnight.
We might want to accept the open door to give a major thank you to Tissot for welcoming us to be a piece of this driving game and their incredible accommodation during our stay.
