It was a tough Giro with some tough climbs – not least the Mortirolo, the subject of today’s photograph by Wei Yuet.
The picture : On the Mortirolo
Giro d’Italia, Sylvain Chavanel. The Mortirolo was described to me as ‘a super hard climb, and the riders suffer a lot, but the scenery is not that great’. Looking at the expressions of the riders, the mountain definitely broke them. I was also making pictures using borrowed equipment on this stage, so I was not sure how things would turn out.
