With winter refusing to let go of Europe before May was out, an autumn arriving with torrential downpours in Italy for the Worlds, it’s been a dramatic season in the pro peloton. In the brief summer we did have, Chris Froome rode from Corsica to Paris to win the 100th edition of the Tour de France.

From Fabian Cancellara dominating on the cobbles to Vincenzo Nibali winning at the Giro d’Italia and Chris Horner pulling off a shock at the Vuelta a Espana, leading photographer Tim De Waele has been there every step of the way, photographing the stars of the peloton, rain or shine.

Procycling’s Season Review mixes De Waele’s stunning photography with reports and cuttings from Cyclingnews and ProCycling Week’s coverage from throughout the season. Out now, you can order your copy right here, while you can also view a gallery of images, here.
