Alps – Day 36


Mt Joly, Les Contamines, France

This photo was taken working late on a friday night. Covering the Trans Savoie was one hell of an experience. This was the 6th and final day, the final stage. The last hurdle on the hardest day of the race. The pack was pretty spread out by this point, we had a lot of time between riders. The first racer through hadn’t reached the start of the stage until near 5pm. Tom and I had reached the stage an hour ahead, the start timing marshall had been waiting on the top of Mt Joly for six hours. If you are going to spend a lot of time waiting around between shots, I can think of worse places though. This final stage was a brilliant end to a brilliant week.
