  • Impressive!

  • GeoffO


  • Feeling cold just looking at the pics… awesome!

  • Faz

    Outstanding images in very trying conditions. Respect!

  • Hollywood

    Love the photos, now that’s what’s you call epic.

  • Museeaw

    Wade these are awesome photo’s, serious courage shown by the riders

  • Jack Chang

    Extraordinary images, what an epic race!

  • Sean Doyle

    Speechless. No words can describe the internal suffering these guys went through but these pictures tell the story. I’m in awe of both competitor and photographer.

  • DChang

    That’s crazy sick!

  • brave cyclists and brave photogs! magnificent images

  • Unbelievable images – just stunning.

  • Mikegroom

    Amazing pics, thanks for posting! Europe is heaven! Too bad Australia will never be as cycle-friendly. If we can get rid of the big egos and bogans off the roads, perhaps it’d be a good start,

    • Mark

      What makes you say that? Sure, there’s the odd idiot or two, but is it really that bad? Sounds like a case of grass is greener to me.

      Been living/cycling in the UK for 6 months now and I have had more road rage directed at me during this period than in all of the 7 years I spent in Melbourne. Mainland Europe is a different kettle of fish for sure, but I wonder if it’s as good as you (and others) say?

        Mark, in my experience Europe is a different kettle of fish. I’ve ridden quite a bit in Tuscany, and the traffic is just beautiful. Narrow road, no verge and a large truck will rumble along for as long as it takes until it can pass safely. Naturally you look for any opportunity to return the courtesy by getting off. Doesn’t matter whether you’re out in the country or in Florence or heading up to a hilltop town, cycling is expected and accepted.

    Wow. Amazing photos. Captured perfectly.

    As usual you captured the moment perfectly. It’s as if I can feel being there, with the snow falling on my back and the numbing cold on my fingers. Bravo (again).

    has anyone heard of bicycle commuters?

    • PT

      Who ride 300km at 40km/h? No.

  • Great photos by Jered & Ashley. Must have been hard work in those conditions!

  • Glamorous…
    Amazing stuff – we’ll be looking at this with reverence still in sixty years’ time.

  • Alex

    “tags: 2012 Milan-San Remo” kind a wrong year in the tag. Superb photos, thanks!

    Des heros

    I thought the images were striking and dramatic- they really captured the conditions. They evoked thoughts of just how hard it must have been to maintain the quality of composition in those conditions. Then i went to the gruberimages blog, read about their day and how unhappy they were. Comments like “We were like spoiled kids walking back to the car – in disbelief that
    things had gone so wrong on the picture front, in disbelief that things
    hadn’t gone our way. Sometimes you need a kick in the ass, a day to
    remember that it’s not all pretty pictures and smiles. Sometimes it’s
    work, sometimes it sucks, sometimes riders do cry in the snow, and
    sometimes, sometimes, you wish you were somewhere else, doing anything
    but this.” Hmm…I think they must be tough on themselves!

  • Is it Kiryienka with the old school cap keeping the snow off the glasses?

  • fantastic shots…

  • mattb

    Who is that madman going for a surf? Maybe Jens just popping out for a quick wave in the freezing conditions, while the others were defrosting in the buses?

    Actually, probably not, Jens would’ve been in boardies, not a wetsuit.

  • theattack

    Even Flecha was suffering.

  • Tough day out for all. I hadn’t really had an appreciation of what a painful experience this had been for all until I read Jered’s words and saw their pictures.

  • Floody

    Terrible conditions, incredible photos. It would be great to have some labelling of those photos when time permits.. Who is that guy in b&w shot with the alt tag ‘7’? Looks like a carbon-frozen Han Solo.

    Jered and Ashley Gruber, these are award winning pics- Stunning! …Is there a cycling photography award similar to the Walkley or Quill awards? If not there should be.

  • Busta

    That’s nuts! The looks on the faces in some of those pics kinda remind me of images of soldiers marching in the snow during WW2.

  • Are we able to purchase any of these images? I’m thinking they would look awesome on my Office wall.

  • Scott Barrow

    Outstanding. Photos and men. Thank you to the Grubers and CT.

  • Captions would have been nice, but other than that, top quality images.

    • As you could see from Jered’s email, he was absolutely shattered and couldn’t even get a story out to me. It wouldn’t be right for me to put captions on his photos as I’d only be guessing.

  • Thanks for all the kind words! I’m so glad we had the chance to be part of this day. :-)

  • Thanks so much for posting these photos. I follow Jered on Instagram but had no idea you were both such great pro-cycling photographers.
