Tour de Kolter 2013The Tour de Kolter 2013 edition corresponded to the 100th edition the actual Tour. And what a race we had! Monsieur Buron, a 5th grade parent, volunteered to trace the outline of the parcours and set the yellow cones. It had turns and straight lines, ups and downs, just like the real race! Merci beaucoup, it added a lot of suspense as the riders went one by one through the sometime looking labyrinth! It was fun!
We had also a fabulous audience which supported all the riders.In the end, Jacklyn Helm won for the girls and Jayce Nunn for the boys. Both received a yellow jersey, a reminder of the actual yellow jersey won by the Tour de France best rider.
