The descent of the Port de Balés was amazing. So happy I got to shoot that side, and @jeredgruber was stuck on the climb. Haha.
My favorite picture of this year’s Tour de France - and it was taken by @ashleygruber. I’m glad I’m on her team. #tdf
I still remember the first time I saw an image of the peloton crossing the bridge in Sisteron - it was over ten years ago. I remember thinking - man, that’s a cool spot. I would love to see that in person someday. It was a happy hour for me to spend a few minutes there the other day. Next up on my list of dreams: the Pyrenees! #tdf
Every…last…drop of Switzerland’s delicious sugary beverage, Rivella. #tdf
I love the big mountains. I love them so much. The Izoard is an incredible climb, and I’m happy we had the chance to spend an afternoon there yesterday. #tdf
Is Mordor the sister city of Sisteron? #tdf
A fast-moving stripe across the French countryside. —— @ashleygruber got the chance to spend a few minutes in a helicopter yesterday afternoon - she says it was amazing. The images seem to prove that. Follow her if you want to see even more of what we are up to at the Tour! #tdf
This one is for Roger Kluge - the big German continues to battle through his first Tour with a smile on his face. He finished yesterday’s stage to Chamrousse with a bloody nose and seven seconds to spare ahead of the time cut. And he was still smiling. And he still signed some autographs. He will be in the gruppetto today - suffering - if you’re on the roadside and you read this - give a big cheer for Roger!
The salt-caked shorts of @janieracevedo in Saint-Étienne after a long, hot day on the bike. #tdf
Beware the uncategorized bump at the end of a long, hard stage. And so it was yesterday - the last hill was, as IAM DS Rubens Bertogliati puts it, gratis. It was the steepest climb of the day, and it did the job of smashing an already small front group into even smaller pieces. It was also pretty. :-)
