Clipped In AZ goes behind the scenes at the Tour de France

Clipped In AZ’s Regina Jefferies went behind the scenes with an official press pass at Stage 3 of the Tour de France in Cambridge, meeting Peter Sagan and Ted King (Cannondale) and spotting Vincenzo Nibali (Astana), the current race leader in the yellow jersey.

Jefferies also snapped photos of Alberto Contador (Tinkoff/Saxo Bank), Marcel Kittel (Giant/Shimano), Andre Greipel (Lotto/Belisol) and Jens Voigt (Trek Factory Racing).

“It was crazy to be so close,” Jefferies said. “I was inside the barricades, but people were pretty respectful about the fact that they were focused on the race.”

Jefferies said Voigt rolled up to the start eating a pastry.

“Jens Voigt is the most awesome person, ever,” Jefferies said. “He was so great to the crowds.”
