ToB Stage 3 [Stoke]. Photographs Pt.2

September 18, 2011

ToB Stage 3 [Stoke]. Photographs in B+W.

September 14, 2011

Yesterday morning I went along to Stoke for stage 3 of the 2011 Tour of Britain and this is a small selection of the snaps I took whilst there.

It was a great day and the atmosphere was awesome. I must also say that the team village at the depart was in a fantastic location compared to last year. This year it was situated in the beautifully green and picturesque Trentham gardens so big shouts to the organizers for picking out such a great spot for the teams and spectators alike.

More photos to come…

Manual for Speed.

July 29, 2011

A manual for speed is a collection of photo essays, videos, narratives, interviews and anecdotes, all of which illustrate the pursuit of speed.

If you’re a fan of Garmin-Cervelo or Castelli, or just pro racing in general then head over and take a peek, you’ll love it!

Manual for speed via the excellent Headset press.

Giro D’Italia. 1991. Passo Pordoi.

June 10, 2011

Two stunning photographs of the Passo Pordoi.

The portrait shot is surreal, the mountains actually look like they have been painted in. Amazing.

Found.

Yessss! Love this on so many levels.

The ride will be completed over 11 days and we will only be staying in towns and cities beginning with the letter ‘B’. Now That’s whatssup!

Check them out here and you can also sponsor them too, do that right here.

Rapha Continental inspires.

Man, this is truly awesome. Not this movie per se, but the idea of what’s in it. Priceless.

The Rapha continental.

Kieran Young is now out for the summer touring with Rapha and their mobile cycle club and as you can see on the video below he’s currently out in the Schwarzwald having an absolute blast. What a way to spend the summer, man!

Great to see the Very Well T still looking hard, too!

Elcyclista at the Start Village.

March 25, 2011

Curtains drawn, they pull up one by one, with fans rushing to peer through the curtain cracks, hoping to get a glimpse of a rider – I actually heard one guy claim “that is Ballan’s leg!” Mechanics remove bikes from racks and the parade of bikes begins. Perfectly built and pristine, bikes are lined up for public viewing by the team buses (but no touching – the unsaid rule). This moment, maybe more than any, is the biggest sales pitch for any brand in the bike business…. more

Great write up and great shots from Elcyclista at Milan-San Remo.

The Milk Race. 1982.

March 10, 2011


I cannot stress enough how good this film is!

Twenty-five minutes of great, well shot british cycling footage. The soundtrack is awful but I suppose it makes a nice change from dubstep or eurotrance. The narration is pretty good too.

Enjoy.

Hell.

This April sees the return of last year’s smashing success of Rapha’s HOTN ride. Looking forward to this as I missed last year’s event due to a ruined car… said car is now wishing it hadn’t tangled with me, while it sits atop another hunk of metal in the local scrapyard.

Find more details over at Rapha.

Tour of Britain 1990 ( Birmingham stand up ).

November 5, 2010

Well now look at this, Phil Liggett standing tall in front of the town hall of my home town. Can’t get enough of this footage… more, more, more!

If you liked this you may want to take a peep at this and this too.

Chasing Legends.

October 8, 2010

The trailer to this film looks immense and I am totally looking forward to seeing it on the 21st Oct. You too can watch this film at a cinema near you on the same date. Check this link for details on where it will be screened.

There also seems to be somewhat of a pre screen shindig being organized by the good chaps of Birmingham Fixed Gear, check this link for more details on that.

Looks like it’ll be a great evening!

Photographs from the Tour of Britain.

September 13, 2010

Photographs taken on 12th September during stage 2 of the 2010 Tour of Britain. It was a great day and lovely to see so many people turn out on top of Gunhill! It felt like the Tour de France, with pies.

Want to see more photographs of pro race bikes, racing and whatnot? Go here to my flickrspot and peep.

1989.
