    Forgot lieuwe westra, he doesn’t upload all of his cycles but he does upload a good bit with many of his spins having over 4000m of elevation

    You’ve missed out the best one, Marcus Burghardt, some of his photos make you depressed you’re not cycling where he is.

    Gesink is a pretty creative photographer, love his photos.
