As a professional photographer and athlete, the thing I love to see above all else is effort; 100%, focused, passionate, effort. So for Janine and I to shoot the 2010 Giro d’Italia’s absurdly steep Plan de Corones uphill time trial in the Dolomites was pure joy. With sections as steep as 24%, gravel roads, and a pink jersey at stake, suffering is guaranteed. In fact, the road is so steep that the motorbikes following the riders will often stall and get stuck. Best of all, I could walk to the finish from my house.
