A hunt for the northern lights. They're elusive and yet abundant. Worth the late nights.
National CX Championships 2016. The steps were just one of many challenging aspects of a truely championship worthy course.

Col du Tormalet
Weather in the mountains is a fickle beast. It changes so rapidly. One minute you are bathed in sunshine, rewarded with stunning vistas then suddenly the shutter drops and you can barely see your hand as the mist envelops. Makes for planning images an adventure...
The Col du Tourmalet can be literally translated as 'Bad Trip' which for many this formidable climb can be... The 'temple 'is time to take a breather on this long climb, time to reflect how far you've come and how far you have to go. A time to pray that the next section isn't quite so brutal.... You may linger a while...
The race is on
Being a tourist
New bike, fresh shadows, old concrete

Thin White Line
This image won a gold medal in the 2012 PX3 - Prix de la Photographie Paris competition back in 2012. Shot during a local evening criterium, during the elite race. The rider is James Moss riding for Endura Racing.
Taking his retirement very seriously and kicking back just before he headed on stage to present various awards at the Braveheart dinner.
There is a race on. Behind the scrum of motorbikes. Nuetral service, commissionaires, press, photographers and assorted all vying for the best postion. Behind them the riders are tackling the infamous Arenburg Cobbles. Both sides lined with spectators, the best line is a narrow strip on the left, but barriers make this line hard to stick to. The riders are forced to ride the cobbles. Some make it some don't. The beauty of Paris Roubaix. It's brutal, survival of the fittest and sometimes pure luck of the draw, with mechanicals and random spectators ruining the party on more than one occasion. Oh and don't mention the weather...
A road less traveled. Following a man on a mission. A dream to break a record.
