Cycling photographer Russ Ellis has just spent three weeks at the Giro d’Italia, capturing the race in his own inimitable style. Below, he presents his favourite photos for us.
What a month!
I’ve covered a number of stages at Le Tour over the last three years but this was my first ever Giro and my first time covering all 21 stages of a Grand Tour.
Here are my 21 favourite photos, a mix of race imagery and shots of the passionate Italian fans who lined the roads from Sardinia to Milan. Most of these photographs were taken while hanging out of a car window!
I hope you enjoy the pictures – amore infinito!
