STAGE 01 Saturday, June 29th Porto-Vecchio > Bastia (213 km / flat)
So, do you need a boat that can be self transporting between your favourite fishing locations? This years TDF has you covered with the awesome #flyingdinghy (not an IRB with a hang glider – it’s a flying boat!)

Just in case you thought the only location in the world that you wedge large transport is the bridge near the South Melbourne market – OGE tries for the TDF bus limbo championship!

Sitting on the team bus thinking it can only get better from here. At least the hotel is close enough for the boys to ride there—

The unsung heroes of the Tour de France – the cows.
”We’ll be watching the Tour on the TV,” Mr Wiggins said. ”SBS has a great tour tracker app which we’ll check on the iPad and we’ll use the other one to look at Twitter. Sometimes you want to know who the rider is … so you’re also Googling on the laptop.”
Ms Toohill said: ”There’s awhole community that establishes itself around the time of the Tour de France.”
And it can be a quirky community. A popular Australian Twitter account is dedicated to ”the unsung heroes of the Tour de France” – its cows.
