The yellow jersey group on the Col d’Izoard

We have literally hundreds of pictures from last week’s race in the Alps. Sadly it takes us a long while to upload the images so please be patient and we’ll try to get a few articles posted this week…

We also rode the Izoard and the Alpe d’Huez in preparation for the Etape next month, so a report from these hills will also feature this week. In the mean time here are some of Gerard’s top pictures. There will also be a few of the editor’s rather quirky attempts at digital imaging…
