Took some time off from pre-Tour de France work to preview last weekend’s Prix de Diane, France’s answer to the Epsom Oaks. Check out my articles about the race in The International New York Times. Interesting articles to write, but perhaps more fun to be at the race in Chantilly last Sunday…

Another three weeks in July have come and gone. And after a couple of weeks traveling throughout Europe and the American Northeast, I’m back on the Texas beat.

In the Jura Mountains, a First Time Tour de France Host

I took some time away from the race last weekend and headed to Bellegarde-sur-Valserine, a small industrial town near the France-Swiss border. My story about the town — and its preparations for hosting its first Tour stage — appeared in The International Herald Tribune and The New York Times on Wednesday.

For more on the race throughout this month, please follow me on Twitter or check the Stories tab above.

(The photo above is of a mural, designed by the French cartoonist Christian Lax, that faces the town’s main roundabout.)
