With not only the arrival of issue two of our magazine but also the launch of our Tour t-shirts, keeping up with the Tour itself has been a struggle. It's amazing, even with the multiple formats available to view the race, it's still difficult to watch each stage. On Tuesday we found ourselves on a train to East Anglia following the race via the Twitter feed. The way in which the information was being relayed felt like we were listening to reports coming back from a far-off war.
Maybe it is in that respect, each stage being an individual battle in the overall campaign for victory. We're backing Mark Cavendish for the Green points jersey and so are you judging by the sales of our Maillot Vert t-shirts. We're looking forward to seeing the big name GC contenders coming into play more as the race heads into the mountains in the days ahead.
