"Tour For Life" is a sports challenge for teams that want to promote and financially support the humanitarian work of "Artsen Zonder Grenzen" (Médecins Sans Frontières - Doctors Without Borders).
In September 2013, I will be photographing the Belgian edition of this 8-day bicycle tour from the Italian Alps to Belgium. Ambitious and challenging (with stages of over 170km and many climbs), the Tour will bring us over roads of bicycling legend, including the Cols of L'Alpe d'Huez, La Madeleine, Le Grand Ballon, the French Lorraine countryside, steep hills in the Ardennes and the roads of the Tour of Flanders.

On June 8, a "Kick-Off Day" was organized in La-Roche-en-Ardennes. These are my impressions of that "dress rehearsal" for the real deal.
