The Lanterne Rouge - Lawson Craddock
Our Tour de France Print Gallery features 21 images caught by pro photographer Chris Auld whilst he covered every mile of the 2018 Tour de France.
The 21 prints each try and tell a story of the race, from its journey through the mountains, to its suffering, glory and agony.
This image captures the brutal suffering the riders can face at the Tour de France. This is Lawson Craddock. A man who crashed on the very first stage, breaking his shoulderblade in the process. Instead of quitting the race, he rode on, racing over 3000km with a broken shoulder. Instead of complaining, he donated $100 for every stage he was able to finish. And finish he did, raising over $200,000 thanks to donations from fans around the world.
We're releasing this print not to celebrate injury, but to remind ourselves that even in the face of adversity, great things are possible.
Each Print is produced with a small white border, and is printed onto Hahnemuhle Photo Rag. A 308gsm, white, 100% cotton paper with a smooth surface texture. With its premium matt inkjet coating Photo Rag meets the highest industry standards while preserving the special touch and feel of genuine art paper.
