ESPN offers excellent Tour slideshow
ESPN.com has an awesome, full-screen slideshow of some of their best photos from the 2007 Tour. I don't think the captions were written by cycling fans, though - one of the featured photos shows Tom Boonen and Gert Steegmans' “stage-ending duel.”

Flickr'ing the Prologue
I think that Saturday's Prologue must be the most Flickr'ed sports event in history. With a million spectators viewing an event on public roads, there are at least hundreds of photos from the London Prologue posted on Flickr.
And the growth of the digital SLR means that a lot of them are really good quality pictures. Graham Watson doesn't have to worry yet, but the pros can't provide the coverage that a million spectators can.
Some of my favorites:
Beautiful shot of Benoit Vaugrenard, who finished 10th Saturday.

Prologue photo galleries
Graham Watson again offers prints of every photo in his current Tour gallery -- this is a great chance to get a print of a favorite rider competing in the London Grand Depart.
BBC London is collecting pictures from the public, and here's the collection from yesterday. Quality is not great -- there are several better Flickr photosets -- but there are some fun pictures in here.
