Can I ask....is this from the camera or a composite. I only ask as there is a large patch of light in between the pedals on the left...of course it could be other cyclist behind bathed in the light but thought I'd ask.....

Looks like that could be part of a support vehicle following the pack, doesn't detract from the quality of this picture for me though Smile

Definately part of a support vehicle Cathy, if you look in the centre of the shot, you can see an Audi logo. Anyway as for the image, stunning setting for a road race and the peleton sorted themselves into a pleasing shape for you Smile Always nice when they do that.

whipspeed, you are 100% correct about the support car and the manufacturer. Thanks CathyT for your award and to everyone for the kind comments.

Great place to take the shot. Used to do a bit of road racing, I can remember the pain just looking at this picture.
