When Clitheroe cycling fan Michael Fotios travelled to Cracoe, near Gargrave, last week to witness Stage 1 of the Tour De France Grand Depart, he didn’t expect to see any international celebrities, especially not the Clitheroe variety.

But that’s what he came across when he saw a French TV crew interviewing two men wearing Clitheroe Bike Club cycling tops for a French sports channel.

Michael said: “I cheekily took their photograph and suggested that I might submit it for publication in the Clitheroe Advertiser. I didn’t get the names, so thought I would send the photo in to see if they recognise themselves.

“The film crew went on to interview my partner and I about what we thought about Le Tour and the Grand Depart – it was all tres exciting!”
