snapshots of europe #11 – rotterdam/tour de france prologue.

We decided to travel to Rotterdam for the prologue of the 2010 tour de france, such a stroke of luck that we were in Amsterdam at the time. Saw all the big names – Schlecks, Contador, Evans, Armstrong, Cancellara etc. Rotterdam is a fascinating city, with lots of interesting architecture, perfect setting for a prologue actually. The rain added to the intrigue, eventually clearing up to a beautiful day by the finish. Here are some pics:

  1. Oh – how awesome!!! So insanely jealous! One of these days I will make it over for the Tour, or the Giro! We are lucky to have the ProTour come to Canada now – every September. Thrilling to watch such amazing races.
