Lance Armstrong at the top of the Champs Elys?es, Tour de France, 1995

James Startt, Bicycling Magazine’s European Correspondent and a veteran photographer of the continental racing scene, has donated a selection of his most iconic photos, to be sold at auction to benefit the CRCA Junior Development Program. Startt is most famous for his Nike campaign shot of a post-brain-surgery Lance Armstrong, as well as the cover of Armstrong’s autobiography “It’s Not About the Bike”. Most recently Startt shot the Look pedal systems campaign “Thanks To Those Who Continue the Legend”, featuring Robbie McEwen and Thor Hushovd.
The photos above and below will go up for auction on March 17th. Check back soon for the link. They were part of an exhibition supporting the launch of Startt’s book “Tour de France / Tour de Force” in 2000. And comprise a broad survey of Startt’s work from the early 1990s. The photos are 30x40cm framed, museum quality archival C-Prints and are numbered in a limited print run. Stay tuned for auction details.
