Photos Of Le Tour

Photos Of Le Tour
I'm a rare American in that I really and truly love the Tour de France. The three-week spectacle is always a highlight of my summer, and actually visiting (and photographing) the race in person is atop my lifetime bucket list. I think part of the reason I love the Tour is because it is so beautiful, so inherently photogenic. Watching the race on television is like watching a beautiful landscape photograph come to life, as the French countryside (from the Alps to the Pyrenees) come to life as several dozen cyclists pedal their way through it. It's such a wonderful event, and in honor of the completion of the 100th Tour yesterday, here's a great gallery of the best photos from this year courtesy of British television network ITV.
