It's a great year for Tour watches living near Paris. Of course we always get the finish but in 2012 we also get a finish in Rouen and a start the next day, a time trial in Chartres and a start in Rambouillet. Today was the Rouen start, so we got there a couple of hours before to catch the caravane and see the riders riding to the signing on before the actual start.
