2017 Ladies Tour of Norway Prologue

Last year was my first year of shooting the Ladies Tour of Norway, but it was one of my favourite stage races. Ok, now that I think about it, I really enjoyed all the stage races: the Emakummen Bira, the Women’s Tour and the Thuringen Tour were all great races and each had its own highlight. Norway will be memorable for the good organisation, the understated but beautiful countryside and the salmon. We’ve eaten a lot of salmon already and the race has just begun. Looking forward to more racing and even more salmon in the coming days!
