Here's VeloNews' closing Q&A from a session with Jean Marie Leblanc, the TdF's director.
VN: What will you be doing next year, when you are not working for the Tour
JML: I will write my memoirs in which I will put down once and for all the
things that I now tell you and your colleagues over and again. Of course I will
also write down all the good memories - and believe it or not there are a lot of
good memories as well. Besides that I will attend to the public affairs of my
native region in Northern France and hopefully find time for my great passion,
which is music.
I'll look forward to his debut album!!
