07.07.07 Went up to London to see the Prologue of the Tour. Beautiful sunny day for a change. Lots of people which makes you realise how big London parks really are. Caravanne started the whole thing off with floats going around the course with pretty girls throwing samples to the crowd. All very jolly. Riders warming up very colourful, lots of spandex and very high tech bikes with carbon rear wheels. Hard to see much on the actual course so watched most of it lounging on the grass watching the large screens. The hopes were that a Brit might win as this was the first time the start was in London but Fabian Cancellar, a Swiss, won with an average speed of 53.7 kph.
