Sergi Florenciano’s photos from a Gran Canaria training camp. The climb averages just over 10% but swings from 5% to over 20%. Florenciano works with Thomson Bike Tours who running training camps and the photos come from Conquista.
I just got back from shooting the 2014 Rouge Roubaix in Louisiana and this moment is still resonating… This rider crashed on the second gravel section. Bike washed out from under him and he split his brow, spilling blood all over his face.
That was mile 30. He finished the whole 105 mile race and showed up to the finish like this.
