Client: Team Jumbo-Visma
Location: Tignes, French Alps
To prepare for the 2020 Tour de France, Team Jumbo-Visma’s top riders spent weeks training and sleeping at altitude. Based in the French Alps village of Tignes, the team rode numerous iconic climbs in the region, including the Col de l’Iseran.
The team consisted of Primoz Roglic, Tom Dumoulin, Steven Kruijswijk, Robert Gesink, George Bennett, Sepp Kuss, Wout van Aert and Mike Teunissen, who would feature as a backup.
I joined the team for a few days to document their preparations for the biggest event of the year. My goal was to shoot as many images of both each individual rider and the team, while also showing the environment their hard work was taking place in.
