Really like these compositions.  They reflect different angles and vantage points to create a unique view of the riders.  Too often people stand in one spot and shoot the same boring perspective over and over again.  Well done.

Fourth photo from the bottm is best.......... Reason...... Blurred wheels.  Get the shutter speed down on many of the others.

Fabulous work, Ulrik. The weather was a challenge but the shots benefit from the light and and the wet.

Our Tour of California was cancelled and may never return, and I am envious of you who still still have cycling races to shoot. Great sport and a great challenge to shoot.

Cheers,

Rick

Thanks Rick and Peter - It was pouring down at the start of the race - at least my Fuji camera and lenses was tested and did not drown

My pleasure..... I used to shoot motor sport, many years ago..... Not professionally, just for an expensive hobby
