    Odd coverage here.

    When the broadcast began it showed the riders had 130 KM to go until they finished, so it was well after the farmers. The guy on the motorcycle mentioned the incident and they showed a brief clip, but that was it.

    Well, that's a bummer. I'll watch stage 17 tonight if I can.

    Just learned that Paul Sherwen passed away last December. Broadcasts won't be the same without him.

    You obviously don't get the Aussie commentary then. They had a lot to say about it.

    I'm hopeless at the geography of this part of France. Did they go by the Marne or Belleau Wood battlefields today?

    They went past the Douaumont Ossuary today. Such a sobering sight.

    Hi Owen.

    They showed a nice drone shot of it but I don't remember if there were any cyclists in the picture, now that you mention it.

    Guess I ass-u-me-ed again. :(

    I know post is a few days old but no. Belleau Wood was to the west of the route.
    Edit. Trying to upload a screenshot but it wont.
