Sounds right. The changer is below the left brake lever. Wearwell is prominent on shorts and just visible on jersey. He has a bandage or brace on his left knee. A spare tire is wrapped around his shoulders. It is in the mountains and there is a chap running beside him offering another bottle.

Great picture. Did he not ride for Hercules?
