The Tour de France comes to Mt Blanc

July 23, 2016

Stages 16-19 of the 2016 Tour de France were all within touching distance of my home in Chamonix.  Stage 18 was a time trial between Sallanches and Megeve which seemed a good opportunity to get some good pictures as they are usually not quite so crazy as the standard stages in terms of crowds.  With a rider going past every 3-5 minutes rather than the whole peleton in 30 seconds you get plenty of chances to perfect the shot.  Here's a pic of yellow jersey wearer and eventual stage winner Chris Froome going past me just above Domancy.
