Thank you for your comments. The Editor's choice award is especially welcome. This is the first time I have been to a cycle race and taken this type of shot. This shot was take without autofocus, I watch the bikes go round the course a couple of times, then set the camera to take one shot at a shallow depth of field. Then waited for a rider to come into the frame at the right focal length. This was my second shot.Grin

A really great example of sporting/reportage photography, which has all the right ingredients, mixed up to produce such a great image.

Really excellent, homing in on one competitor's personal struggle. We're following part of the Tour of Britain in September, doubt I'll get anything up to this.
