Ignoring the racing ones (of which it would be hard to chose a best), I'll put up this one as a contender.

 Great pic
 That gets top marks just for having the balls to take it on the move  ;D

I personally know two people that have broken their collar bones trying to take pictures on the move.

On the move is easy. You just need to have a model saying 'left', 'up' etc.. And to concentrate on the important thing (wheels between you and the tarmac).

I might trawl through the racing ones - there are a few nice ones in there.

That photo ^^ certainly resembles a painting more than a photography. I like.

This is one of my faves from the weekend - about 40 miles into a 56-mile triathlon bike leg, with the run to go...

It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

I always quite liked this one, taken on Bryan Chapman 2007. Subjects too well known for it to be an Arrivee cover.

I didn't take this one, but I did direct the photographer through almost ever single step (including getting a set of steps for him to stand on).

That is me, on the tandem, with my youngest.

I took loads at the Smithfield Nocturne this year, but I like the ghosting effects in this one

Monkey with a typewriter camera syndrome I'm afraid. No idea on the make of camera let alone settings! This is the top UK crosser racing in my club cross promotion on my farm last year.

I took this one of bobb getting to the top of Exmoor in 2007. Camera was a bog standard FujiFilm compact digital.


My favorite one of me is this one, which my dad took at Herne Hill this summer. Just to put it in context - I was in a two and a half lap handicap race, and had started right from the back. This photo is just 3/4 of a lap in. The lady to my left was a total liability - she decided to veer heavily to her right as I was about to go past, which is why I had to go so wide! I came fourth. Great fun though.

Another Smithfield Nocturne Ghost, obviously traveling around the speed of light at this point!

Well if it is ghosts you want, you need to head south of the river..



I do like this one to sum up riding at night in London..

I thinking they're pondering how many new bikes they can strap to the back of the tandem...  ;D
