Hipsters aren't the only ones in tight pants; the participants in the Tour De France also rock skin-tight sportswear during their epic journey. Photographer Brent Humphrey attempts to capture this, and more importantly, the ambiance of this monumental event in his Project Le Tour.

The project shows tourists, spectators and cycling enthusiasts all along the route of the Tour De France. What a way to spend your summer days!
