Due to the course layouts getting variety of shots at this year’s Worlds TTs is tough. You can either shoot the start, one spot on the course or the finish. As Chris Auld agreed to help me out with in race photos I decided to stay at the finish area catching riders after they cross the line, dodging marshals making arbitrary decisions about where you can and can’t shoot. There’s nothing like giving a person a uniform to fill them with a false sense of self importance!
