Went to see the start of Stage 2 yesterday in La Nucia and took a few photos. It was 41 degrees at 1.00pm according to the Sky Bus driver, certainly felt like it. I hope the link works as I've posted the pics on our Facebook page:

Seeing Bradley Wiggins up close, I was astonished by how thin he is compared to the majority of the other riders. Veins were popping out all over him. Delighted to see Chris Sutton win, he took timeout to speak to a whole bunch of us and sign photos etc.

    Cheers Oscar was pretty relaxed and this was about 2 minutes from the starting gun where he was amongst the last to line up..His wife Laura had been in my wife's beauty salon in Denia a few times this summer so he was actually making some jokes about that.

    Yeah, he looks quite like me except much fatter :lol:
  • Great pics. It looks like the public had quite a bit of freedom to wander about - something I hadn't expected with all those expensive bikes around!

    I used to call stalking "Professional Bike Riders"; "Cycle Perving".
    It was always a little like stalking and then asking for an autograph prior to half an hour of plucking up the courage and in the meantime looking as though I should be arrested for loitering without intent.
    This is how I felt I looked like with my copy of cycling weekly for them so sign; hmmm...
