I went to see Tdf stages in Alsace in the early 2000s two times, when I was living close to France. Unfortunately I don't have any particular memories about it. The riders passed by so quickly, I kind of decided the waiting wasn't worth it... Last year I was like should I go, should I not, when the Deutschlandtour started and passed by rather close to where I live. In the end I went to the start and because everything was so relaxed and there were such few people I got to see a lot of great riders really close, but of course no action . I don't have any friends interested in pro cycling, so I'm thinking it's probably way more fun if you go with people who are enthusiastic about it. That's my plan for the next time.
