Mens Sprint

By whipspeed
Probably one of my favourite shots from last week so far, I like the pure agression and determination in Theo Bos' face as he trys to keep ahead of Chris Hoy.
Chris won this round, lost the second and won the final, making him World Champion.
The atmosphere was electric and the noise incredible. We almost lost our voices.
Comments and critique welcome as always.

An exceptionally good photo. The intensity of the cyclist's expression coupled with the blur in leg, wheels and background make this a dramatic sports' shot. Top photo. Deserves more attention.
