Hoy se ha celebrado la tercera etapa del Tour de France 2010 que está siendo eclipsado por los últimos partidos del Mundial de fútbol. Ha sido una etapa muy movida que recorría varios tramos de pavés o adoquín en las tierras belgas. Tales eran las dificultades para moverse entre los diferentes grupos de corredores que se formaron en esos caóticos tramos de piedra que los fotógrafos se han pasado fotos a modo de Pool. Ap, Afp y Reuters han pasado fotografías de otras agencias firmadas de esta manera.

Pero lo que más me ha gustado han sido las imágenes de la caída de Frank Schleck, no por el abandono del corredor de Saxo Bank, si no por ser una de esas veces en las que vemos el mismo instante desde dos puntos de vista diferentes y vemos al fotógrafo hacer la foto. En estas imágenes cruzadas te introduces mejor en el caos del momento, entiendes al fotógrafo de ciclismo y sientes el dolor que supone caer en el pavés.
