Casey Gibson’s Stage 16 Photo Gallery

It was just one of those days.We caught a good shot of Tyler on the first climb, just as he attacked. Of course, not being on a motorcycle, our next best option after that was to try and get ahead of him and catch him later on route.On the descent, we got a little off-course and ended up on what could best be described as a goat track... much to the amusement of the locals who kept saying, "No voitures," "No voitures,""No voitures." Okay maybe we should have taken them seriously when they said "no cars."Anyway, we drove like hell for 80km to get back ahead of the peloton and had to negotiate

It was just one of those days.We caught a good shot of Tyler on the first climb, just as he attacked. Of course, not being on a motorcycle, our next best option after that was to try and get ahead of him and catch him later on route.On the descent, we got a little off-course and ended up on what could best be described as a goat track… much to the amusement of the locals who kept saying, “No voitures,” “No voitures,””No voitures.” Okay maybe we should have taken them seriously when they said “no cars.”Anyway, we drove like hell for 80km to get back ahead of the peloton and had to negotiate our way back on to the course, after finally convincing a particularly stubborn member of the gendarmerie that we were not Basque Separatists.Finally, we got up ahead and found a spot where we were sure to get a dramatic shot of Tyler on his epic break… one that would eventually earn him his first stage win at the Tour de France. Great!So we get set up and… He comes around the corner, casually drinking a coke; not exactly the intense action shot I was hoping for. Oh well, what the heck…So right after I snap the shutter, he takes a couple more swigs and drops the can off the side of his bike. One bounce, and it sprays all over me, my cameras, and my lenses. What are the odds of that??!!The Tour rolls on… have fun,
Casey
