Cool Pro Racer Photos

This photographer Tim Kolln made a project of photographing bike racers just after they'd crossed the finish line and climbed off their bikes.

These are the hardmen.

These are some great shots, thanks for the link - his other stuff on the site is pretty good stuff. McEwen's got some guns on him, damn.

It's nice to see that they are hurting as bad as I am after a race.

You want to see suffering: checkl out the Road to Paris.

The segment where Bruyneel is trying to talk strategy to LA during the 2000 Amstel Gold is priceless.

Thatís bike racing! I like fancy high-tech gear as much as anybody, but racing is snot on your gloves, salt on your face, lactic acid everywhere, and hurt on top of pain. Very cool series of photos.

That's how I look after a hard ride: salt/snot all over my face. A little fatter and a lot older of course.

Awesome photos! Pozatto should model.

I am thankful though, that Rasmussen kept his jersey on and zipped all the way up.

I remember this one time walking into the school gym with my bike. I thought everyone was looking at how cool I was - only to find out that I had this huge loogie mark across my face
