Contador is skinny as a whip, truly. And even though he won last year’s Vuelta, where I shot these, he was approachable and at the same time maniacally focused. As to what fuels, his engine: who knows? But the guy is very photogenic – skinny, tan, handsome – and exciting to watch. A week at the beach will cure whatever ails you and now it’s time to get back to the grind. But it’s cool because I’m heading to a part of the country I’ve only driven through and promises to be amazing for photos. In that case travel isn’t so bad after all.
