With this year’s Tour de France being one of the most dramatic for years, interest in pro cycling could not be higher!
Lincoln hosted its own piece of history and drama with the British Cycling National Time Trial and Road Race Championships last month. With a mix of pro and amateur racing there was something for everyone and every age was catered for.
Weather conditions were [on the whole] perfect, if not somewhat warm and this encouraged massive and supportive crowds onto the streets of Lincolnshire.
I was lucky enough to capture all four days of action and my exhibition, “The Lincoln”, tries to encapsulate all that unfolded in front of an excitable Lincoln crowd and there is still time to drop over to The Angel Coffee House and see for yourself. The exhibition is also on-line as an extended photo essay and prints can also be ordered from the site.
Described by the commentators as
“better than a Belgian one day classic”
Peter Kennaugh was quoted as saying
“I haven’t felt like this after a race before – I’m absolutely buckled.”
You don’t get better recommendations than that.
