This second image for Stage 9 shows Marc Hirschi, demonstrating his astonishing descending skills. Hirschi is so exciting to watch – if you haven’t seen this yet, I urge you to look at a video from this stage – it is edge-of -your-seat viewing!
I love these descents – I love to see the speed and enjoy the challenge to convey that speed in a picture. Here, the image was helped by a man at the side of the road waving his French flag on a long pole! This gave great impetus to the line, which I hope gets the feeling of movement across.
Have a good day today.. 🙂
