Critérium du Dauphiné: stage 6 vaches roundup

The Dauphiné continues to spoil those of us with an interest in cows, with stage six also giving us Carlton Kirby who took the opportunity to share some of his bovine knowledge.

Reliable vache-watcher Visible Procrastinations called the first sighting:

We had to wait a while for the next sighting, but both the helicopter and the commentary team made it an easy spot.Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 6.13.29 PM

Carlton Kirby was confident enough to identify these as charolais, also suggesting that they might be destined for a kebab in the finish town, Grenoble (where he advised exercising caution with harissa).

The final vaches sighting was fleeting, but substantial.

Perhaps not quite as substantial as Bugwan initially reported…

The "beasts of the field... doing their thing". More classic cow commentary from Carlton Kirby.

Obviously I have updated my Tour de France map to check out these beasts as we drive into Grenoble.
