This week’s Picture of the Week is of the 2006 Tour de France winner Spaniard Oscar Pereiro, who was awarded victory after Floyd Landis was disqualified. He is pictured cycling near Lindley Wood reservoir near Otley. The image was taken by cycling author and journalist Chris Sidwells.

Also pictured, inset, is the cover of one of his recent books, Classic Cycle Race Routes, which includes details of the tough Etape du Dales ride, a 112-mile ride that starts and finishes near Grassington. For more details about Chris’s work go to
