Tour of Beijing 2012 City Circuit

The Tour of Beijing started with a circuit race around the city

My day

1. A jetlagged influenced night’s sleep of 3 hours followed by a 6am start to walk the streets on the hunt for cycling cultural images. Slapped and swatted, I found myself not welcome where I tried to shoot. Later told I was trying to shoot unlicensed vendors – well done Dan!

2. Opening day of the Tour of Beijing with a circuit race within the city. Good day on the moto, got some great images. Lots and LOTS of military line the roads, how could I pass them up? They’re willing models.

3. Editing, posting, eating, and finally sleeping – repeat for the next four days.
