We continue our series of photographic retrospectives with some of the best pictures of the season from Italian photographer Roberto Bettini.
Bettini has been following cycling for more than three decades and has captured some of the most memorable moments. This season, the Italian has followed around the peloton from the Tour Down Under in January and the Tour of Beijing in October, and everything in between.
Some of the highlights include Vincenzo Nibali's conquering of the Giro d'Italia and Chris Froome's victory at the Tour de France.
