Thanks for all who came down to the start today and apologies for being moody I was unsure whether I had a passport as I hd left it in library the previous day ! Luckily I got through to them.

Tons of media were out which was nice and people came from all over. I am on the ferry to Calais now the weather was truly dreadful today but nice to be riding! This is better than all the planning!

Internet goes dead now so will blog where I can I’m sure if you google the race or me some media stuff will come up, plan now is to get out of france, might bed down quite soon tho !
