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…
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!
Two stunning photographs of the Passo Pordoi.
The portrait shot is surreal, the mountains actually look like they have been painted in. Amazing.
This is the real shit. Pure fluid motion on two wheels.
Man, this is truly awesome. Not this movie per se, but the idea of what’s in it. Priceless.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Gotta’ love American commentary!
