The atmosphere was wonderful. We made it a day out with collapsible chairs, picnic and wine. All around the locals and tourists were chatting and excitement built-up as we awaited the Pelaton. It was this stage 17 from St Jean de Maurienne to Morzine (200 km) that Floyd Landis broke ahead and finished stage winner. He was later disqualified and Oscar Pereiro went onto win the race in Paris.
