Sharpie66 June 26, 2021 Share June 26, 2021 Those two crashes were nasty, but I loved seeing Alaphilippe just take off, leaving everyone in his dust. It is so great to see Le Tour return in its usual June/July time slot! I am looking forward to seeing the fields of sunflowers and lavender. I’ve been working on my family genealogy this past year, and I just found one branch last night that started in France! My 10th great-grandfather was a French Huguenot from outside of Lille who boarded the ship the Gilded Otter in Amsterdam in 1660 (for a four month journey!) and ended up in the Catskills near Woodstock, NY. (Weird thing is that we had no idea there was any connection to New Amsterdam, and this is the second branch with early colonists there—I have a Dutch/Moroccan 11th great-grandfather who arrived in Manhattan in 1630 and became possibly the first Muslim permanently settled in North America.) I am definitely going to be looking at the stage maps to see if they get near Lille this year. 1 Link to comment
