Video: On board with Team Sky as Tour de France heads into London
Shimano cameras on Bernie Eisel and Geraint Thomas's bikes for last day of Tour's visit to Britain
This may just be one of our favourite pieces of bike-cam footage yet – on-board with Team Sky on Monday’s Tour de France Stage 3 from Cambridge into the heart of London.
The film is shot with Shimano CM-1000 Sport Cameras attached to the bikes of Geraint Thomas (front facing) and Bernie Eisel. There’s some glimpses of Chris Froome, with the number 1 on his back –now missing from the race following his abandonment yesterday.
It’s nice to see Richie Porte engaging in a bit of joking with riders from other teams, showing it’s not all serious business all day long in the peloton; how could it be when you’re spending so much time in proximity over three weeks, including with riders who will be training partners or former team mates?
