Recommended Viewing: Tour de France Photography

Going through Tour de France withdrawals
The first few days after the Tour coverage end are brutal. Cold turkey - no more daily live viewing of the Tour de France until June 30, 2012. To remember how good it was, this is a great collection of photos. Definitely read the name of each photographer responsible for each image. These were the people in the thick of it, day after day to capture our best memories and what we would like to imagine we would have seen if we had been there.

This video of Laurens ten Dam working the crowds of fans on Alpe d'Huez will make you feel good:


And another video of the peloton, along with Thor Hushovd, rounding the final "Norwegian corner" on Alpe d'Huez in 2011: 


And of course my favorite photographer blogger from the entire tour O'Nev Cyclismo Fotographia:
