Time for many to dust off La Petite Reine! For some it may an attempt to fly. However, I'm doubtful if the above prototype will get Charles anywhere near to Sweden today! I fancy he will have to try more conventional means even if they could be problematic given the strikes etc.
Talking of La Petite Reine, the route for the 2011 edition will be announced in Paris this evening, although it is already known that the start will be in the Vendée. See here.
Report from Vincent Ogereau on the latter stages of their 2011* vendange but first I have to head off to St Albans to follow more of the fraud trial. See my investdrinks blog.
* Vincent is often en avance but on this occasion my mistake - 2010 vendange. Sorry done in a hurry before heading off to catch an early train northwards.
