Tour de France – Stage 17

Every day at the Tour is amazing, but some days are harder or easier and potentially more exciting than the others. The hardest stage is usually referred to as the queen stage, and no doubt about it, today was the queen stage. It’s also getting to be late in the tour, and anyone hoping to make a move would have to give 100% today. Add to that, the ridiculous profile of the stage and the crazy weather, and you had the ingredients for an amazing day.

Having ridden to the top of the final climb of the day, we were well positioned to get some great shots. Here are a few favorites.

[Spoiler alert: this may give you some insight into how the stage finished today]
