Covering the Peloton PN20-12
The best way to get the images of the race that we all enjoy is to be in the middle of the race on the back of a motorcycle. Here as the peloton spreads across the narrow road, a photographer turns around to shoot the group as they chase down the lone escapee. I have seen this particular helmet over the years shooting races. Does anyone know who wears a red helmet with a white stripe and a white star? The drivers must be very skilled to stay out of the way of the race and counter balance the squirming photographers and videographers that are their charges. I once tried to see if I could paint the races this way. Silly I know, but it would have been cool. But the weather of this race thus far would have made it impossible let alone the infeasiblitly of painting on a moving motorcycle on back country roads.
