Paris Nice, Stage 6: For the Cameras

Obviously, Simon Yates (Orica Scott) was delighted with his stage victory in Fayence.  He was giving jubilant shouts and enthusiastic gestures to the crowd all caught by the hordes of press photographers seemingly sitting in formation.  I was struck by how similar the press core's positioning reminded me of the gun battle formations used by British soldiers in the American Revolutionary War.  I know, I have silly things rolling around in my head that sometime sneaks onto my computer screen.  Never the less, well done Simon!
