2004 STAGE 2 / Namur, France: The Fassa Bortolo lead-out train races toward the finish on July 5, 2004. // On this day we tried something different. Rather than photograph at the finish line, I went half a mile before the finish, hoping to catch something more dynamic. At one point I was so nervous, my teeth hurt. I triple-checked my settings. Five times. No matter how much I prepared, everything could change. As the cheers grew louder and closer, I saw before me the stunning lead-out train coming at me at 45 mph. I don’t remember hitting the shutter, but the intensity of the moment left me speechless.
