Laura Antoine, the American Tour de France podium girl.
Her name is Laura Antoine, a model from Saint Louis, as reported by Versus today at the Tour De France. American cycling fans are now in google-overdrive scouring the web for more photos of her.
Whether planned or not, Laura has found a novel and bold way to stand out from the zillion other beautiful American models trying to get noticed. And now, after a few hours of training, she can kiss and hand out stuffed lions or flowers at the same time. Ask Tony Martin of Team Columbia. No wonder he’s working so hard to keep that white jersey.
TS suspects Laura’s booking agent will be extremely busy for the next year. First Lance Armstrong is back, and now we have Laura Antoine, too. What can we say — vive le tour.
