Spring comes late to Estonia, so the natural impact for me is that the cycling season starts a bit later over here.
While over in France, Belgium and Italy the cycling season is already well underway and just last week the famous Paris Roubaix ’pave’ was lifted.
For me the start of the Spring here in Estonia means I can finally get to photograph what I enjoy most - cycling races.
The last months have been spent photographing an interesting range of things that I usually do in the ‘off-season’ from Winter sports to private events, from studio portrait sessions to food, from Musicians to Sauna-fanatics. All those things that I really enjoy, but it is in cycling where my real passion lies.
I plan to kick things off this year with the classic season opener, the Sangaste ‘White Roads’ classic held over gravel and road. Then follows a couple of Mountain bike races as part of the Bosch MTBest series before I finish my spring off with the 3 day UCI Tour of Estonia and Tartu Rattaralli cyclosportive. Looking ahead to summer i have quite a busy programme mixing bike races and weddings, but more of that closer to the time.
As always I will try to update my social media accounts with pictures from these events. Looking forward to seeing you on the road.
