Behind the scene with Team Sky at the Giro

Scott Mitchell is Team Sky’s official team photographer and he is putting out some fine images – the above being my favourite. The whole lot is worth a look. I really like those behind the scene shots, so intriguing and out of place or – in the right place? It’s good to see a new breed of cycling photographers coming through, who are pushing the boundaries in what a ‘shot’ should look like (I’m not saying they’re new to photography though). It’s all becoming a lot more creative. Of course I still want to see this classic race shots, but this new element seems to bring the sport to life.

    Steve, I’m with you on this – Scott’s taking some superb photos and like yo say, a really nice approach with less traditional shots.

    Thanks Jon, have you seen this? http://ontourbradleywiggins.blogspot.com/
    Very good too.

    Scott’s pics pull off the tricky feat of covering both Sky/Cav and the austere purist’s race, Il Giro, doing justice to both.

    You feel like you are in the image with the photographer – outstanding and memorable.

    I’ll buy the book if such a thing ever appears.

      That shot of Cav did it for me. It captured the suffering and determination to not end up out of the race. I would happily hand over the dosh for a book of his pics!

    Not to belittle any other cycling photographers, but I think that
    Jered & Ashley Gruber are in their
    own league …

    This picture is brilliant- involved in the action, a little more than spectating, and because the shot is unusual it has that element of surprise that prompts a closer look, and a closer engagement with the image. Always something new on this site- splendid work chaps!

      Thanks Lisa. I think that is how I read this shot too.
