The weather wasn’t kind on the opening day of the 109th Tour de France. Rain soaked the course, and fell for much of the first stage. Yves Lampaert claimed victory and the first yellow jersey of the 2022 race. 

Zac Williams will be on site at #TDF2022 and we will share some of his images in galleries as the race unfolds. Here is a collection of his photos from the TT in Copenhagen.
