Another in the mini-series from the Pro-Tour cycling event in Northwich last Friday. I like this one for the story it tells: as the race progresses to its later stages some unfortunate riders are lapped. Here a rider is still giving it is all whilst the leading group have him in their sights as they round the bend less than 100m or so behind him.

Excellent reportage, showing the ruthlessness of the Madison Genesis teamwork in this round.
We finally caught up with it on the ITV hub, it was a superb race.

The considered opinion, over a bacon sandwich lunch, was that this deserved a Double Wooly...

Double Wooly duly awarded.
Excellent composition with the three focal points (not focusing points Smile). The lone cyclist's expression suggests abject fed-upness together with the determination to "see it through".
Having watched a few of these I am reminded that the potential spectacular head-on shot of the peloton is only available to the motorbike camera Sad
An excellent set all told, Adam.
