le Tour de France, 2002
22 July, Stage 15: Vaison la Romaine - Les Deux Alpes (226.5 km).
These pictures were taken approximately 1 km from the top of the road to the ski resort of Les Deux Alpes and the finish of stage 15. Again the weather was sunny and warm with temperatures in the mid-twenties in the valley and close to 20 degrees C at the top of Les Deux Alpes.
The stage was won by Santiago Botero (Kelme), 1:51 ahead of Mario Aerts (Lotto) and Axel Merckx (Domo) at 2:30.
Sorry again about the quality of the pictures here. It was getting quite late in the day and I was standing amongst the shadows while my camera was staring out into bright sunlight. Unfortunately my little point-and-click Olympus has no manual controls to compensate for that.
