Caravan girl, looking a bit tired and ready for Paris tomorrow.
Greg LeMond holding court with Joanne Simpson (one of Tom Simpson's daughters), a cameraman and journalist.
Garate, winner of the stage. Garate dropped Tony Martin directly in front of us.
Tony Martin watching his hopes of a stage win on Ventoux evaporate. Could not have been fun!

Andy looking great! Frank looking dead. Contador & Armstrong calmly following, waiting for a final decisive move that never came.
Contador looks pretty calm, just riding along, waiting yet another attack that won't succeed. Frank Schleck really looks hammered. Lance, just barely seen in this photo, looked like a man with a job to do, and he was going to get it done.
So close to the podium you can almost touch it, but not today. Wiggins rode a phenomenal race, transforming himself from track to road better than anyone could have imagined. But towards the end of the climb he just didn't have enough left in the tank to match the GC leaders.
It's usually more polite to spit away from your fellow competitors, not towards them...

The Tom Simpson Memorial, with, I believe, both Simpson daughters on the steps (in the Brittish flag t-shirts)
Yes, he did zig-zag across the road. Shoulda had a compact crank!
You don't think he's drafting do you? Check the next photo in the series-
A sequence of photos showing Mark Cavendish pay his respects to Tom Simpson by removing his helmet.
The blue van is the Fin de Course, following the last rider. In this case, the large group that was in the prior photos. Surprisingly, they weren't all that far behind the leaders.
