Grand Duke Jean Watches Cycling Race

It's that lovely day of the year again when the Tour de Luxembourg passes through Fischbach and Grand Duke Jean comes out to enjoy a little cycling (though I had - not so secretly - hoped he would be accompanied by some of his grandkids like a few years ago but alas, he wasn't). Instead, the former Grand Duke was joined by now retired Luxembourg cycling ace and Tour de France winner Andy Schleck and Ed Buchette, secretary general of the Grand Duchy's cycling federation, to view the final stage of the tour. While today's stage was won by Belgian Sean de Bie, the overall winner was Linus Gerdemann of Germany. More info at Wort.
