    It's almost a cliche now isnt it, but the Shouty Jonge is actually a great photo. Really captures the passion of the Belgian fans

    What was the photo with a cyclist's name written in the snow on a mountain pass where the photographer later said he was the one that wrote it there to get the perfect shot?

    There were many great images taken during the mud section of the 2010 Giro d'Italia.
