Le Tour de France – Day 2: Stage 15, Embrun to Prato Nevoso


Follow the road until further instructed… Hurray, the satnav is working again!  We’re on our way to Prato Nevoso.

Ahh ! pardon, bonjour mes amis en Ecosse, bienvenu à le 15eme etape de la Tour de France avec l’equipe VeloVeritas.

Kilometre 52, four kilometres from the summit of the Col d’Agnel and Jean-Paul Loris of ASO leaps into the road ahead of us. Despite the fact that we’ve passed hundreds of police and officials, he’s spotted that our stickers are the wrong colour.

We plead, beg, bargain; “Non! You stop, here!

He drags a young policeman over to enforce the ban; Janitorial officialdom at it’s very best.
