Col d'Izoard - Casse Déserte 2 - b & w

Gifts for cyclists, black & white cycling photography prints. Cycling Art.

Unlike many mountain climbs, the Col d’Izoard is accessible from the nearby town of Briançon. This meant being able to roll out of your hotel bed, head up the mountain, and set up ready to capture our heroes emerging as if from the bowels of the prehistoric earth. Covered in the dust conveniently kicked up by the tour's entourage, their spare tyres strapped across both shoulders like machine-gun belts, struggling upwards to glory, and hopefully a hot bath.

The modern-day sporting heroes were created here for public consumption, on the prehistoric slopes of the Col d’Izoard.

A tradition that continues to this day.
