|This is the set-up that will be used for the whole race—my HQ|
I don't see much of the race, if any. There's the start, and yesterday there was the finish. In between, I won't see the race since I'm of course not part of the race caravan, and as DCO I have to be at the finish well before the race arrives there. Driving in one of the commissaire's cars is thus impossible. (In Philadelphia and also in Saguenay I was able to hop into the car for a few laps of the circuits that were used.) So, this is definitely a different type of ballgame.

We'll see what the next few days bring. Right now it is time for me to finish off this entry and start the day in earnest. I will try to write an update in a few days—maybe a few more photo ops come up along the way, but don't hold your breath hoping for some of those iconic race shots that you may have seen of this race in the past, with the peloton rolling down Highway 1.
