“This Tour has obviously taken place against the backdrop of terrible events in Nice and we pay our respects once again to those that lost their lives in this terrible event. Of course these events put sport into perspective, but they also show why the values of sport are so important to free society.”

“This Tour has obviously taken place against the backdrop of terrible events in Nice and we pay our respects once again to those that lost their lives in this terrible event.

“Of course these events put sport into perspective, but they also show why the values of sport are so important to free society.

“We all love the tour because it’s unpredictable, but we love it more because of what stays the same: the passion of the fans from every nation along the roadside, the beauty of the French countryside and bonds of friendship created through sport. These things will never change.”

Well said.
