The loneliness of Penyghent Lane

Hands down my favourite shot of yours truly at the Peaks this year. Geoff Waugh has form with the Peaks already, though he is best known as a multi award winning photographer specialising in mtb and pro road cycling.

His dark film of 2012 superbly captured the epic conditions of last years race and contrasts nicely with this sunny, though somehow lonely, shot of me on Penyghent Lane shortly before Crampgate. Geoff concurred about the loneliness, commenting that he felt it was a 'solitary race with lots of riders'. Sure feels like that...
