Tour De PEZ: Shooting Le Tour On The Champs

Shooting the Tour de France on the Champs Elysees is a great assignment and an opportunity that very few photographers can experience. While the fans are set back from the famous boulevard making getting a good shot all but impossible, the working shooters are right in the thick of the action.

Tour de PEZ: A Bon Jour En Paris!

The final report from the Tour de PEZ is a few days late. Well, it just wouldn’t be France if the internet actually worked now would it, and anyway, these stories are like a good wine, they mature.... I hope!

Hours Ahead of the Maillot Jaune

Pez-Man Nick O’Brien joined an exclusive group allowed to ride the full Tour de France stage 5 distance from Beauvais to Caen – 219 mostly flat kms across northern France – just hours ahead of the actual race. Closed roads, cheering fans, a fast closing caravan… this was not your average Tuesday ride…

TDF06 Stg 20: Yellow Floyd – Number One In Paris!

It’s another American success in Paris – somehow there were no more bizarre twists or turns today, and Floyd Landis navigated the final stage without mishaps to score his maiden Tour de France win. Given the amount of time he spent chatting with other riders in the peloton today, I think his win seems a pretty popular one.

TdF06 St19: Landis Is THE Man!

This must be one of the best Tours de France in a long time, not for the nervous, we've had it all, scandal, attacks, come backs and epic rides. All that's left to decide the 2006 Tour de France is 57 km of individual suffering. Lance has gone, there’s a new guy on the block, long live the king!

TDF06 St. 18: Tosatto Mвcon Bacon

How much more drama can a bunch of cycling freaks handle? From the dismissals before the start of the Tour, to the rise, fall, and rise again of Floyd Landis in the high mountains, it’s almost too much to take! Today’s flat run to Macon left the Alps behind, and was the last chance for sprinters’ glory…

Tour De PEZ: Put Aside The Pass

PEZ-Man braving the Tour in the field, James Hewitt, finds himself in Albertville for the final day in the mountains of 2006. After such a spectacular day at the TdF its pretty hard to try to compete with the Floyd so I will not try but if you are so inclined, read on!

TDFChallenge: Into The Mountains

With 16 stages down and 4 to go, Pez caught up with Destination Cycling’s Tour de France Challenge team in the stage 17 start town of Saint Jean de Maurienne – two days ahead of the race.
