Entry Description

I was asked to photograph an Ad for the Stan's NoTubes cycling team. The company wanted something different from the typical flash heavy action shots of bike racing. Since Stan's NoTubes wheels are created to reseal themselves when they do puncture, I thought where better to go than the dirt roads in the woods of Pennsylvania. The photo ran as a full page advertisement in cycling magazines. To this day it is a favorite photo of mine as it captures a couple of things that people love about the sport: Riding with friends and escaping their daily routines.
