The French send over the Gendarme bikers even when the Tour is in another country. They stand at every piece of road furniture and roundabouts
For a fast moving event they need a lot of bikers

During time trial stages they go along with each rider too if I remember correctly. Must upload my ones from when they were here before.

Each team would have a lead rider and maybe another 2 riders
There is 22 teams of 9 riders in the Tour. So that's 66 bikes needed

From what I was reading last week, that clip is about a joint Police and Ambulance driving school course.
It's not the HSE's opinion, it's not managements opinion, it's mine. All mine.

Sure they're not allowed to drive fast anymore 75, that's now called high speed pursuit.

Racing being the operative word. Tyres on the limit on some of those corners, second from last particulalry where it skips across the road ! They went by that fire engine like it was stopped 148
We trained hard ... but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.

I'm guessing it's a VW van. Plenty of them in use over there.

They like their vans over there. I wonder can we get them instead of the Hyundai's?

He who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The man who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been before
