Straw hats hang on a wall at the Chambre d'hote in Centres after the 13th stage of the Tour de France cycling race from Muret to Rodez, France, July 18, 2015. Photographing the Tour de France cycling race comes with highs and lows: the buzz from capturing just the right image, the tedium of long journeys, the painstaking set-up of equipment, the breath-taking scenery. Reuters photographers have worked not only to capture the thrills and spills on the roads and mountain passes. They have also shot a set of pictures showing their own quirky view from behind the scenes as they travelled through the Netherlands, Belgium and France. REUTERS/Stefano Rellandini
