Worlds Junior Women's Time Trial 2017

Shooting the juniors can be tough, especially in a time trial. I usually like to wander around and pick a mix of different positions, with a bit of ‘warm up’ thrown in for variety. It’s easy with the elites as you know there are riders where it won’t matter if you miss them in a TT (no offence intended) but with the juniors anyone can win so you can’t afford to miss anyone!

Writing the captions and keywords for photos with the juniors it’s the first time their name has appeared in my database of photos. I can’t help but wonder which ones I will be adding thousands of photos to the archive over the next 10-15 years and which will fall by the wayside.
