A rainbow of colour speeds through the countryside
Circling , circling spinning around and around.
Rushing through towns and villages far and wide.
Pumping, pumping up and down eating up the ground.
Nations united all in the race sweat and pain shown in the face.
Riding the wheel of the man in the lead
Nothing but winning matters in this race.
Ignoring the falls even if they bleed.
Speeding speeding to set up the lead
Racing away from the pack of the peloton
Eating up the miles with incredible greed
One slip of concentration and whoosh your lead is just gone.
Motor bikes,scooters, cars and vans follow the riders
Throwing gifts to the crowd hoping they will behave
The excitement is mounting here they come, and go like gliders.
The roads so crowded with onlookers, ignore them just be brave.
Climbing the mountains in the pouring rain,
Your heart is thumping, pumping your head wants to explode
Speeding through the valleys the sun out again.
Rushing to the finish it’s the finale sprint all those wheels and feet implode!
Time for celebrating jersey’s to award
The domstiques are exhausted they have done all the work
The teams and spectators are happy to applaud.
Tomorrow is another stage so wasted effort is something they cannot afford!
