Tour de France Team Presentation Parade.
Voigtlander Vito B.
These are some pretty awful photos. Just have to admit it. Though, I'm also really happy with them and that's because this little event was a pretty awesome. I've been a cycling fan for a long time. With the Tour de France starting in Leeds this year, I was able to time a visit to my best friend to coincide with the start of the Tour. Usually the team presentation is a free event held in a town square. Up until this year, only one other time have they charged money for the team presentation. It's a boring event, but to a nerd like me, I was really hoping to see it. But, based on the ticket price, I thought I wasn't going to be able to see it. Then, they announced that the teams of the Tour would ride a route through town on the way to the arena where the actually presentation was going to happen. And that's where these photos come from. It was a bad photo day for me. And I really don't mind at all. Basically the cycling nerd side of me overpowered the photo nerd side. Also a battle between the want to document a special moment and also just live in the moment. The result of this are these crappy photos. And, yet, I totally love these photos.
