This past week I once again had the pleasure of taking part in the Road 2 Victory charity bike ride that benefits the Davis Phinney Foundation. Although this time around my 'part' was slightly different as I had a previous personal commitment that I needed to attend. I was fretting about the scheduling conflict until I phoned fellow photographer Ed Graham. He quickly agreed to step up and take the reigns for me this year to capture the behind the lens action. Ed's creativity and easy-going style were a natural match for the event and I knew the ride would get the coverage it needed and deserved. As I suspected, Ed didn't let down. As I've been combing through the photos this week, I truly felt as if I attended the ride this year. He did a stellar job capturing the emotion and importance of the Road 2 Victory. Being a part of such a great event is a true honor. Watching so many fellow cyclists turn out each year is amazing and the event is only getting bigger.
This year was made even more special by several pro cyclists joining the ride. Recent US Pro Championship winner Timmy Duggan, BMC rider Taylor Phinney and Garmin riders Christian Vande Velde and Alex Howes were in attendance! It was great seeing so much support from the pro ranks and also seeing the Phinney family ride together again.
