This is the vision I had in mind when I headed to the USA Pro Challenge with an unconventionally long lens. I wanted to do something that had never been done before. I wanted to push the boundaries of cycling photography. The full project will be unveiled later this year, but the goal was to capture athletes that were pushing themselves beyond their physical limits. As a long time bike racer, I know what that feeling is and I wanted to share that feeling with the world. In this image, Rory Sutherland has clearly gone well beyond his physical limits. His efforts and ability to suffer have become a product of his will.
