Saint -  Laurent, Provence, Tour de France 1998


This was taken on stage 12, and shows the peloton passing through the Provence town of Saint - Laurent, the location of the day's feeding station.
I was very pleased with this shot, which turned out exactly as I envisaged. I knew the riders would be moving very swiftly, so, on seeing this sweeping bend over a bridge leading into the town, I decided on a shot from the rear
I got about 4 shots in before the riders were gone.
