It's good to see the occasional Welsh flag in the Tour coverage.
Allez Geraint.

If Wales ever go it alone, one positive would be the chance to see a Welsh Nat Champs jersey in Le Tour.

A red dragon in the helicopter shots of riders' back would be very cool.

( Go G! )

There is a Welsh Road Race champion.
He is Gruffudd Lewis of Ribble Pro Cycling, but I'm afraid he is not riding the Tour.

Gruffudd is a great name!

Does he wear the champ jersey in races? I do hope there's a massive dragon on it.

It's pronounced Griffith.
No dragon alas.
