Nice 1-2 for my UK club on thursday night. The problem with racing in the UK is you can get a load of TT specialist turning up to a 3/4 cat race. Break went at the beginning, average speed of 45kph on a rolling course before two of us got away 5 miles from the end. You tell the winner is a TTer - he lifted one arm off the bars to celebrate just after this photo and almost fell off :D

Absolutely great. I love that the forest looks like the inside of a cylinder.

Team time trial through the vineyards of Bordeaux on Sunday morning. Did better than expected but still lost the yellow jersey. Managed to hang onto the polka dot till the end of the tour though - First TTT together and approaching the end so that's why it is looking a bit scrappy :D

Image

Sunday afternoon and a 100km road stage. bit flat and the guy in the yellow jersey didn't give anyone an inch.

Finale régionale – Rive-Sud in Ste-Julie

Here's one I shot this past Tuesday.. It was a MTB race in the middle of a hydro electrical station !

I was attacked by mosquitos and there was poison ivy up to your armpits.. But, the light was pretty good..

Someone needs to sell him some regular water bottles and a razor. Is that white cable running along the downtube for his DA-Di2 or for the SRM?

Thanks Jekyll!

It could be anyone, that's why I didn't want to offend the person on their equipment. Some people really like to get the best equipment no matter what their level of abilities/experience are in racing... I guess if you could afford to replace it, then sure, go for it.

I just don't get why, with all that effort to look pro, the water bottle is a re-used Gatorade bottle and the legs, obviously.

Photo screams Los Angeles to me.

To be fair though, his Gatorade bottle is probably lighter then a proper bidon.

He didn't even make it through the neutral roll-out and his speed sensor was rubbing his rear wheel (don't they normally go on the front?)

I told him what was making the racket and he reached back to correct it. The peloton starts making jabs about the guy as he drifted off the back then next thing you know, MAYBE 3 miles into the race he goes off the front and holds ~15-20 seconds until the last 3 miles. He was rocking like Jens in the final 3k of a 240k race and his left knee swung out like he was trying to fan himself down, but one hell of an effort!

The photo was taken in Rainier, Oregon.
