Cantwell – number 6 #teamsaxobanktinkoffbank #TDF12

We are in Rouen – Troels and I are staying down town about a kilometer away from the rest of the team.

Cantwell got in as number 6 today – very good! that made the Australian news team assemble inside the kitchen truck for a shot of the dinner servings. Earlier on we had a visit from the danish TV2, with a live program … same question every day : Whats for dinner ! And if they ask me to early, well then I don’t know yet – really it’s true. The menu is created as we go, I might change the plan last minute… Anyway I came up with some thing on the spot – I think it worked.


menu of the day:

  • Brandade of cod on crutons with chervil and cranberries
  • watermelon, feta, green leafs and black onion seeds
  • osso buco with pepper and courgette
  • white beans in olive oil and parsley
  • chicken, plum, capers, slow cooked onion and tarragon
  • fresh fruit
  • whole wheat pasta
  • banana bread with freeze dried strawberries


Folks and dudes – that’s it for today !

bon nuit!

  1. Looks delicious!

    If you are not yet annoyed with the questions from various reporters; Where do the riders eat? Do you bring your food into the hotel resturant? I would have thought the french chefs pride might be hurt if that was the case! Haha

    Good job keeping our riders rolling!
