93: Reptile Sleep



Brendan reveals he is a Tour De France tragic, having spent the last week and a half watching this grand tour. The race has the largest number of spectators watching the event live of any sport – reportedly up to 15 million. Not surprisingly considering its not hard to get a view, with many days the event covering just under 3,500km of roads. He rates Le Tour a 9.5/10.
