A year of cycling snaps from the Classics and the Giro
Having spent the vast majority of the year on the road covering a race-packed calender, photographers Jered and Ashley Gruber have finally had time to compile their best race photos from 2012. The couple tend to follow an Italian-focused programme, from San Remo to the Giro, with breaks into Belgium for the Classics before a final set of race dates in Italy as the season winds down.
With photos from the Paterberg at the Tour of Flanders to the epic scenery of the Corsa Rosa, this extended gallery of photos brings together a year of images and fantastic racing, with Alberto Contador, Mark Cavendish, Fabian Cancellara and Ryder Hesjedal among the riders who feature.
The Grubers have produced this calendar too, which is available to purchase online.
