I hate that the first sentence in a story about the Tour de France is about drugs and NOT about the sport. A bicycle is a thing of beauty. And one that's going very fast, powered by someone very fast...that's beauty in motion.
Photographing a race is a dizzying kaleidoscope of color and speed and sound. There is so much to capture and it's flying by in the blink of an eye. I like the challenge.
And just once, I would like to be that fast. A girl can dream. :)
