Le Tour de France – My videos of Stage 6…
The 2018 Tour de France ended on the 29th of July with a victory in Paris for Welshman, Geraint Thomas. It was a hard fought race until the penultimate stage in the mountains of the Pyrenees.
Before Geraint could win the ultimate prize in cycling, he would have to complete 21 stages over 3 weeks totalling 3,349 km.
We travelled from Scotland to see five stages of this year’s race and the second of those was Stage 6 on the 12th of July in Brittany, near the village of Le Moustoir, marked with the red arrow on the following maps.
This is the overall Tour map with our location for Stage 6 shown by the red arrow.

The original blog post describing our day at Stage 6 can be found HERE but the following 2 videos were not edited in time to include it with the blog.
This first one shows the parade of sponsor’s vehicles known as the ‘caravan’ which dispenses freebies along the entire route of the Tour de France.
This second video shows the race passing us…
