Graham Shorrock Fine Art Photography » Tour de France 2008

A few shots from 17th stage of the 2008 tour de France, Embrun to L’Alpe-d’Huez. The day is arguably the hardest of the entire race 210km with three major mountain climbs, the Gallibier, the Croix de Fer and the final climb to Alpe d’Huez. We were positioned on the Col del Croix 2067m which is a climb of some 1400m, not easy when the temperature was in the 80s! The crowds are amazing, they estimated some 500,000 people lined the route and if you wanted to watch on Alpe DHuez you had to get there two days before! If you are ever in France and the tour is on, go and see it, it is a fantastic spectacle.
