Crowded VII

I have been fortunate to follow elite world cycling all over the world.
The Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec is a tremendous event that benefits from not having the insane crowds that follow cycling in mainland Europe or the UK. That doesn't mean that they don't get crowds or knowledgeable fans. They do & in large numbers.
As a case in point, here is the adoring crowd for Peter Sagan in Quebec in 2016. At that time he was the world champion and the cycling equivalent of a rock god. He still is.
If you can spot him, he's the one with the top-knot.
In the build up to the race, race day-during and after, the majority of my shooting was focused closely on the star, or the action and the result.
But Sagan at that time was a huge magnetic draw for the crowds that at times made it difficult to get close enough for that profile shot. This image though was about capturing the huge magnetism of the personality and the man. It was also about the fans. Enjoy your deserved retirement Peter.
