Sports Photo Competition 2013 No 1 : Entry Number 169

Judges Comment

NIce capture, having been an avid cyclist myself I can appreciate the difficulty in nailing this image, as I've shot a lot of cyclists, both on and off road. A little more space to the bottom right corner may have helped, but nevertheless you've captured the energy, speed, effort and dynamic of the sport all in one picture, so well done, good work.
