The Paris stage is the climax to three weeks of grinding racing. There is so much to reflect this year, which has been extraordinary, one of the best men’s races ever in my view. Paris was also the place for the start of the 2022 race, the women’s Tour de France, which runs this week. A long time coming but great that it’s finally here.
I made images on the day and there are more to come but I just quickly wanted to reflect the city itself with the Arc de Triomphe, which features so much on this last stage and also in my work over the past ten years. I never tire of that view – It’s amazing!
Here is the Arc de Triomphe 2022 style..
