I think this video of the Tour de France it’s the one I am the proudest, because the difficulty of the subject and the environment of. TDF It’s THE race of the year for all the pro cycling team. Staff manager and athlete are fully focus on the trace. So for two dudes like Loris von Siebenthal and me showing up for the first time was not a easy task. But step by step and making an easy plan as we can and with the big help with Mavic we did it, we were always at the right moment at the right place and get the right gear at the right… moment. So here is our journey. Saturday evening we meet up at the Garmin hotel to do the staff interview and try to figurate what going on the Dday. Sunday morning Loris followed the team Liquigas (team equip with mavic wheels) and I follow the team Garmin at the hotel where I had the time to take some good shoot with heavy gear slider follow focus etc. Everybody move to the village of TDF Loris went straight to the start to catch the control technique by TDF staff and he did a good scouting to check out the access and the point of view, for me I stick at the Garmin bus to shoot the preps of the team with 300mm4.0. 35 minutes befor the race I join Loris at the start I am stick with the 300mm plus the converter 1.4 and camera set on 50fps. Loris using his Sony Z7 to be right in the middle of the action. Atfer the teams start their race I went straight back to the Garmin bus and see what going on, Loris to shooted the race for a spot he scouted. We all end up at Garmin bus to takes the final itw and filme the winning reaction of the Garmin staff.
