Le Tour in Yorkshire

Tour de France 2014: Stage 1

The Peloton makes its way up Cote de Grinton Moor

So le Tour came and went!

The Grand Depart in Yorkshire was a huge success with millions turning out on the roads of the county to support the cyclists over the two days.

I was asked to renew an old friendship and join the photographic team at swpix.com for the weekend. They were tasked to document the Grand Depart in the county on the lead up as well as the 2 days of action.

I choose 2 contrasting location’s for each day, the picturesque Grinton Moor in the Yorkshire Dales for day one and the ‘extremely’ steep Jenkin Road with its industrial vista for day two.

Proud to have been part of it.
