This has to be the longest title of a picture of mine but I felt poor Davide Formolo of UAE Team Emirates deserved it – The camera seemed to catch him as the rain was full in his face, spitting it away almost.

In fact, this scene preceded what for me was a fantastic moment from the stage – Davide peeled away seconds later to allow his teammate Tadej Pogacar to speed through, almost relishing the conditions – Great team work by Formolo in the dreadful conditions

Still grim!

    1. Absolutely! I felt so sorry for him, the rain seemed to be full in his face!
      In fact, we have unfinished business regarding the Tour of Romandie… I made some pictures that I didn’t get round to posting… I will do that when the Tour and Euros are over. 👍
