Ben Swift the young sprinter riding his first Tour de France with Team Sky has posted the first in a series of what he hopes will be a daily video diary charting his experiences at the race.

He's already posted the first installment and it's fair to say he's pretty excited to be taking part, but then who wouldn't be? He probably isn't going to be reading this, but if you are Ben… try and look at the camera when you're talking! It's okay Dave Brailsford is not going to take the camera off you. Probably.

 

Seriously though, things like Swifty's video diary really do help to give the rest of us a real insight in to what it's like to be on the inside taking part in a race like the Tour - something that just wouldn't have been possible even a handful of years ago. Here's hoping that we'll be hearing from Ben all the way to Paris and that he keeps smiling all the way too.

You can follow Ben Swift's video diary at the Tour on his website www.benswift.com there's also a clip on there of him taking on Otis from the Gadget Show… Otis is on a power assisted bike.

I was almost convinced by "other ben swift"'s drawing of a bike... but then I saw the photo on the about page.
