Tour de Blog: Skoda

The Tour de France is more than just a bike race. There's the scenery, the people, the bikes, the kit, the sponsors and the whole cavalcade.

One of the things that's changed this year is that we no longer get beautiful Alfa Romeo 166s as the standard tour staffer's cars, but now have utilitarian (although, in reality quite good, but not in any sense lustworthy like an Alfa) Skodas.

Shame really, but perhaps the Alfas were distracting me from the actual race.
