    Normally I manage to say something at least vaguely interesting / creative / attempting humour…

    Sorry – not this time

    Stunning.

    That is all I can say.

    Simply stunning

    • I have to admit, it’s the best gallery we’ve hosted here. Ever.

    • Liz Miller

      I’ll second that!

  • Adam Hansen wears a watch, rather than using a cycling computer!

      I get the sense that Adam does everything a little differently. Which is what makes him so awesome.

    • Luke Bartlett

      he probably made the watch too

  • David Shelmerdine

    the tour is very humbling for me..so much effort required..

  • Legstrong

    Beautiful, very personal and in-your-face-kind-of pictures. Love them!

  • jstevez

    And we were able to enjoy a safe tour, I was truly concern after recent events. VIVA LE FRANCE.

  • Bärlach

    Most interesting! Thanks for sharing.

  • Luke Bartlett

    Suspiciously good position for the Froome/Porte/Mollema crash ey? Cyclingtips have a fall guy to hold up that motorobike? :p

  • Chris Riordan

    When I was over there last year I just kept thinking ‘How do you take an original shot of cycling?’…this gallery shows so many great examples of how. Thanks a lot for hosting it and thanks to the amazing photographers for putting in the hard yards so that we can get a feel for what it was like to be there.

    • The thing about a gallery like this is that all these photos were taken over three weeks by about 10 different experienced photographers. There were thousands of photos to choose from. If you look at the individual stage galleries, while they’re still fantastic, they don’t have the same wealth of diversity to choose from.

    Outstanding images!!

  • Mike Hone

    great shots everyone.

  • Patrick Murphy

    Is it just me or does anyone get a bit emotional looking at these!! They conjure up so many feelings, wanting to be there watching, wishing I could ride like them. Superb images, absolutely first class. Personal favourites are Purito and Cav.

  • Brilliant. Thank you for sharing.

  • Frank Risorto

    That’s the best gallery ever on CT!
    EVER!
