UK Track Cycling Champs

Award-winning photographer me: overall winner in a national photography competition run by SkyRide.  The top prize: media access to a pro cycling event of my choice.  I opted for the UK National Track Cycling Championships.  With a surname like mine, i was always destined to be a keen rider and i find track cycling awe-inspiring.

So, we kept the weekend wedding free and whilst Cathy shopped until she dropped in Manchester – admittedly i helped with a Trof breakfast and more than my fair share of tea and brownies at Teacup – i set about creating a little photo essay at the velodrome.

I got within spitting distance – i didn’t btw – of such cycling stars as Jason Kenny, Craig MacLean, Laura Trott, Jessica Varnish, Victoria Williamson, Dani King, Katy Marchant, … you get the idea 🙂

There are many more shots, but wedding work pressures mean i can only offer you a mere selection.

Laura Trott and Jason Kenny are like the celebratory sporting couple that Posh and Becks could have been.

Now, i’m not saying i had anything to do with his success, but i did shake Jason Kenny by the hand before his final ride.  If any other international sporting superstars would like me to shake their hand, get in touch.

I’ve signed up for a taster session on the hallowed velodrome boards. I’m scared.
