Saturday morning saw us up bright and early and travelling to Leeds. Everywhere was decorated in yellow.
We had a glimpse of some participants signing on
In Harrogate the streets were equally packed with people and covered in yellow. We had a good spot just beyond the finish line. Saw the carvan arrive.
The atmosphere was terrific. We were not sure who crossed the line first and then the devastating news that Mark Cavendish had crashed. I hoped it was not true but then saw him wheeled by in obvious pain.
It was great day, I got sun burnt, was desperate for the loo by the end, had over an hours wait in a queue for the train back to Leeds but would not have missed it for the world.
Could not wait for day two!
