A sad farewell.

I’m going to post the below verbatim, as it needs sharing. Headset Press has followed this project from the beginning and we have marvelled at the quality of the documentation of a pro-team, to see their lives as cyclists portrayed in well executed photography and layout – a job well done. Here is Manual for Speed’s words;

“This week came with some sad news that our good friends at team exergy won’t be around for 2013. They were the main characters of our Manual for Speed project. They were our subjects but also our friends. The suddenness of their disappearance is a testament to the fragility of cycling, as a sport. This is the very reason we chose to document a team such as Exergy. Emotionally, physically, or, as in this case, financially, everything could fall apart and shatter at any moment.  If you haven’t, please check out the project out of respect for these guys’ dedication and singular focus. It’s rare to find people so driven to push themselves so far and sacrifice so much for a singular goal. Speed.”
