Hi everyone from David Francis and David Egan.
Hope you are enjoying your summer, capturing superb images destined to score high in next year's competitions. Our next outing, the Ladner Criterium, will feature colour, action and creative use of shutter speed, as well as new phrases such as road rash, peloton, slipsteam and chainring tattoo! The fast and furious Criterium, second leg of the Tour de Delta, spotlights lap after lap of high speed cornering, straight away sprints, and breakaways as competitors race for cash prizes and glory.
