Jens Voigt - Out of the Tour

I was bummed to get several youtube links to Jens falling in the race today. I photographed him last year just prior to the tour start in Southern California. I wish him a "speedy" recovery, that was one nasty spill.

It also looks like Carlos Sastre is starting to turn it on. Last year's winner was in studio a few months ago after testing in San Diego's wind tunnel. I was shooting some ads and took the opportunity to get a frame of Carlos on 20x24 Polaroid.

Should be an interesting next few days as they head to the hills.

Team CSC: Tour de France

I am sending my best wishes to the Team CSC Saxo Bank riders for this years tour. I had a great shoot with a few of the team members, Fabian Cancella, Stuart O'Grady, Andy and Frank Schleck, Carlos Sastre, Jens Voigt and Bjarne Riis for Speedplay. Here are a few of the ads that are out there running in the cycling pubs. Hope to get the chance to photograph them again soon in yellow!
