Fancy footwork at Le Tour

These photos express a simpler time from the Tour. Utterly charming, it depicts the essence of ... France.
Whether from fuzzy slippers to fancy heels, it seems that Frenchwomen have a certain style when handing out water to their cycling heroes. I believe that it's the only sport in the world where the fan's can participate in.
I love these photos!

The 1971 Tour de France:

From fuzzy slippers...

... to fancy heels. Roger De Vlaeminck gets a bottle from an admiring fan. The Gypsy never finished any of his Tours. Even with a little bubbly, he would eventually abandon with a broken wrist!
