Please inform us a little bit bit about your type of images.
Biking isn’t simply concerning the guys and women using bikes, it’s all the things that goes together with it – particularly the followers and the surroundings. I at all times attempt to search for one thing that tells the story of the race, not simply the motion.

Very unprofessional.
