Les Passagers
by Berry
#TourDeFranceWeeks

Élise Pottier, better known by her stage name Berry, is a French singer, originally an actress in theatre, whose first album "Mademoiselle" released in 2008. The album reached the Top 40 in France and Top 50 in Belgium. Her second album titled "Les passagers" (The passengers) released in 2012. The single with the same name was a hit in her home country. This year it was picked as the theme song of one of the daily late night talk shows about Le Tour on Dutch television.

The song has a sweet little video, but for some reason GJ could not find it. Here's the link to the YouTube video: https://youtu.be/9AZGhJJ9Veg

The moniker Berry has nothing to do with Chuck, but is the name of the region Le Berry in the centre of France, where Pottier's favorite writer George Sand grew up in the 19th century.

Today's stage: more mountains, mountains, mountains, with a finish uphill on the legendary but gruesome Col d'Izoard (with a top at 2,360 m), an uphill climb of almost 15 km. In the morning, a peloton of female pro-riders will climb the same mountain (La Course: https://goo.gl/B4q7Eo ). A break-thru in the still very conservative world of cycling!
