Maybe the others are used to wearing their usual dark suits and that's okay too.

But, for the summertime it's okay to vary the wardrobe.

Certainly the older one's may seem to want to stick with the usual black suits but PA looks very appropo for the event and for summer as well!

also, the pics could have been taken in the momentary lull before anything was going on??
viva la differance!!
That was my guess also , I was just making a simple observation about what the picture captured . I agree lighten up--suits and otherwise. Just trying to keep it light!

"The Prince "ambassador" of the Tour de France, yesterday on Stade 2"

PA was interviewed at the Grimaldi Forum by Lionel Chamolaud on Stade 2, and he "launched the media start of this global event which will assure unprecedented visibility for the Principality".

He was able to highlight the main sporting events of this season - tennis tournaments, Formula 1 Grand Prix, swimming competition, "Herculis" athletic competition, as part of "an excellent and particularly valuable communication campaign".

PA was also glad to see the return of Lance Armstrong and estimated that this would generate more public interest in the Tour.

Yesterday at 14.16 h, PA inaugurated the tour de France at the Grimaldi Forum, in the presence of Christian Prudhomme, the "big boss" of the Tour, as well as 700 journalists.
Prudhomme, addressing PA, said that without his idea of starting from Monaco, the the Mont Ventoux stage would not have been possible.

Monaco must be proud to see the tour de france here in Monaco!


So glad there are some pics available for peeking at and to see how MONACO is doing hosting it's tour d France.

So far it's off to a good start and PA looks fabulous.

Did someone say the actual race is the 4th and these are just the pre-competition? we aren't too familiar with the tour de france.

the sights were very nice indeed much luck to them all as it's a great honor to even qualify to be involved in something like this.

they are obviously great athletes.

Article and photo of PA cycling the course with famous sportsmen... it was a sponsored cycle in aid of StarTeam, an organisation helping disadvantaged children.
PA says he used to have a nice bike, and that he did not have to do the full 30 laps.
Asked who might win the Time Trial, he said, "Why not Cancellara? But there are many, and Armstrong remains a great champion..."

Wink Glistening Seas

The translation on the article left a little lacking (lots of ?'s)

does anyone know if PA has ever participated in a tour de France as a competitor or did the article mean he didn't because of differences at that time with France? (the collegiate translation is a little lacking hee)

however, it is good to see PA and Monaco are off to a good start today.

it was nice for PA to mention his nieces competitons to mind today!
Thoughtful uncle!
