A traditional beverage in the area, Poire (pronounced puah-REY) is a refined cousin of the local apple cider. Made from pears, it has a pale yellow color, refreshing acidity and a low alcohol content making it an ideal summer drink.History: Fought after the D-Day invasion of Normandy in 1944, the month-long Battle of Cherbourg allowed the Allies to establish a key port.

The mostly flat leg should set up well for sprinters, meaning Sagan should be able to hold onto the yellow jersey. Delano Hill Seahawks Jersey .
