Gallery 2013: Through the lens of Stefano Sirotti

Continuing our series of retrospective galleries by our photographers, Stefano Sirotti shares some of his best images and special moments from the 2013 season.

Sirotti has taken over the role his father held for three decades, covering professional road racing from the back of a motorbike and the roadside from the Tour Down Under in January until Il Lombardia in October.

Sirotti covers the major international races but also the smaller Italian races that are not often seen or followed in detail even by Cyclingnews.

During the 2013 season he photographed Vincenzo Nibali's victories at Tirreno-Adriatico and in the snow at the Giro d'Italia, he captured the moment Bradley Wiggins' Giro d'Italia ended in the rain and the emotions as Taylor Phinney held of the peloton to win a stage at the Tour de Pologne.

Sirotti followed every moment of the Tour de France and the Vuelta. He then returned home to Italy for the world championships in Tuscany.
