The finest cycling documentary photography
An entire year in the saddle at the heart of cycling's pro-peloton from the Spring Classics through the Grand Tours to the Worlds.
Whether shooting from within the peloton, or partying with the fans on Mont Ventoux, the pictures in this beautifully produced volume reveal some of the many stories cycling photographer Camille Mcmillan has witnessed. Sometimes intimate, other times aggressive, always beautiful, his images are unique.
This stunning photographic volume, with many never-before-seen reportage images, spans some two decades of life at the forefront of world cycling. Documenting a year in the life of the professional cyclist, we are taken from trackside at Ghent's famed Six-Day races, across the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix and on to the tifosi of the Grand Tour climbs. Circus takes us from behind-the-scenes in riders' hotel rooms, onto the seat of a speeding "moto" and into the celebratory anticipation of a roadside bar as locals await the blurred chaos of the peloton. Camille, formerly editor-at-large of Rouleur Magazine, captures the pain, heroism and humanity of this most challenging of sports.
