i completely forgot i had took these images until Nik asked me about them. in early august i was in Calgary for a wedding and it happened that the Tour de Bowness was going, and my friends Nik Vogler and Matthew O’Hagan were racing. it’s always fun shooting bike races. these images are from the criterium, which always proves to be a ridiculously fast race with tight corners and at least one inevitable crash. i could just imagine what shooting the Tour de France would be like.
