These are terrific, Carl - ditto the first batch you posted. Absolutely dripping with atmosphere, all of them.

Great to see all these Carl- great sets and fascinating perspectives on the tour. You really made the most of your opportunity.

I was on the Woodhead Pass when you must have flashed past. Didn't get anything approaching your quality, but amongst my largely random snaps as they whizzed past I did catch a close up of Tommy Voeckler... So I'm a happy chappie

Some of my vaguely better stuff

Anybody catch Chris Froome on a bike. Quite rare I believe. What was Plan B again?

I really enjoyed these Carl, especially the ones of the front of the peloton in action which I assume you took from the rear window of your team car. I look forward to seeing any from the helicopter if you post them.

David - The peloton shots were the only ones not taken from the car. This was about 10 miles out of York - we had raced ahead of the riders to transfer to the helicopter. Managed to grab these from the road side before taking off.

Probably all they can go for now are stage wins.
