The Col du Tourmalet 2015

Tomorrow the Tour de France works its way up through the Pyrenees and the infamous Col du Tourmalet. In 2012 I hiked up the climb with my 5x4 field camera to document the race. I also got to watch Team Sky help, British cyclist, [Sir] Bradley Wiggins get safely up that mountain and a few weeks later be crowned the winner of the race. This year Team Sky's Chris Froome is currently wearing the maillot jaune [yellow jersey] so tomorrow should be a good day's viewing.

Here's a few images from 2012 -
