    Seriously, these are just awesome. I can spend hours looking at these images [and I will!].

    The words are brilliant as well. Thanks.

  • Bogan Brouhaha

    Wonderful work, an inspiration.

  • Stanley Lobo

    These are so SO good !

    I love the expression of [I think] Tim Vanderjeugd, who’s assisting Dirk in picking up Fabian.

    His eyes and smile say so much – well captured by Kristof.

    Does that mean the famous shot of Cancellara lying flat on his back [taken moments before this shot] was actually done by Kirstof?

    I have seen that photo in so many publications / sites etc.

    • I’m guessing that would have been Kristof’s, but unfortunately he wouldn’t have been credited.

      I don’t get many good photos, but here’s one from the 2012 Tdf when Cancellara collapsed right beside me after getting rolled by Sagan (stage 5 I think)

        That is one great photo Wade.

        Cancellara looks like he’s doing a De Niro impression.

    the story with Gilbert……love it !

  • Rob

    Fantastic behind-the-scenes article, thank you!

  • Ian

    Great article. I always enjoy Kristof’s photos, and adding the stories behind these images takes them to another level. For me personally, that shot of Eddy Merckx is amazing – an older man now, but still such a dominating strength in his features.

    Why are you complaining about auto focus? You are a professional. Do it manually!

    • dbranson

      Hanging on the back of a moto or in a moving car, I’m guessing there is not always the time for manual focus.

      • Lach

        I agree.

        Also, outstanding photos & commentary.

  • Adam

    Of all the great stuff on CyclingTips, this has to be the coolest thing I’ve ever read
