Photo of the Day: September 13, 2010

13 Sep

In the cycling world, there’s a lot of overlap between disciplines. Road cyclists try their hand in the track or in BMX, while BMX racers also try out the track and vice-versa. As long as you have a bike you can practically do any of the disciplines. Perhaps the most specialized is the sprint and most sprinters won’t do endurance events or road events except for some notable exceptions (such as Mark Cavendish, Theo Bos, etc.). So what has that got to do with this photo? You may notice in the photo Geraint Thomas (L) and Bradley Wiggins (Middle), prominent British track cyclists specializing in the pursuit events. This podium photo was taken in the recent British Road Time Trial Championships and these track pursuiters did quite well and they’ve been winning this road event for quite some time now. Oh, and Geraint Thomas looks slick in that skinsuit.
