After retrospective galleries of international cyclo-cross and mountain bike racing plus the North American road peloton, Cyclingnews turns its attention to Europe (plus a season-ending sojourn to Beijing, China) via the stunning work of husband-and-wife team Jered and Ashley Gruber.

This massive retrospective gallery is dominated by both Classics and national Tours on the roads of Italy, Belgium, France and Great Britain and feature the stars of the European peloton such as Vincenzo Nibali, Fabian Cancellara, Peter Sagan, Mark Cavendish and Joaquim Rodriguez to name a few.

Mother Nature frequently provided weather conditions to challenge the fortitude of even the toughest of the European peloton's hard men and the Grubers, too, endured wintry weather to document unforgettable days of racing at Milano-Sanremo as well as the Giro d'Italia.

Click here to enjoy their season's work from Strade Bianche through to the final WorldTour event of 2013 at the Tour of Beijing.

Also, the Grubers have produced this 2014 calendar which is available to purchase online.
