VeloNews Spread

I got my first photo in VeloNews -- the latest with Hincapie on the cover. It's a two-page "Off the Front" spread showing Scott Moninger riding past a convoy of Missouri Department of Transportation trucks. Obviously I'm happy, but for several reasons:

  1. I've had this goal for a long time.
  2. I almost didn't stop to take the photo. I was in a hurry to get to the finish line of the time trial and drove for several more minutes before I said, "Stupid, that's the shot." One illegal U-turn later I took the photo.
  3. I happened to capture Scott Moninger, who later announced that the Tour of Missouri was his final race. It's nice to be able to pay respect to him, even if unintentionally.

If you're trying to find a copy of the issue, you won't find any at the Borders in Palo Alto :).

Wow! Congrats. I'll have to pick up that issue and check it out.


Great shot...great symbolism! The lone cyclist riding up a highway lined with MoDOT trucks. It's a classic and I'm glad you went back to capture it.

Thank you. Thought it was a great shot even before we recognized the rider! Made several copies.
