The tour de france: the photographers perspective

The tour is over...sigh

So for those needing a little post-tour pick me up, I found this little article pretty interesting for photographers, cyclists, tour de france junkies. Check it out here: http://www.whatsthejackanory.com/2009/07/le-tour-de-humphreys/
This guys on a mission to capture epic moments from different tours and has some pretty awesome photographs to view

If you're into cycling without all the photo mumbo-jumbo, you'll probably enjoy 40 sweet images from the 2009 tour de france that give both a journalistic and artistic perspective, courtesy of "the big picture": http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2009/07/2009_tour_de_france.html

It would have been pretty amazing to follow up my '06 tour adventures, george hincapie's shots (below) with a little addition from Lance Armstrong and team. There's always next year! Paris in 2010 anyone? Will it be Team Radio Shack or Livestrong/Nike?
