PEARL IZUMI SPORTS TOUR INTERNATIONAL
DAME SARAH STOREY & BARNEY STOREY
On Saturday May 2nd I was fortunate enough to spend the day shooting behind the scenes imagery with women’s cycling race team Pearl Azumi Sports Tours International managed by Barney Storey.
Pearl Azumi Sports Tours International is a nine strong women’s cycle racing team and all the women are amazing athletes led by Dame Sarah Storey. I met them at 7am at their hotel in Leeds and followed them through to their press conference after the first Women’s Race during the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire Saturday May 2nd 2015, run by Welcome to Yorkshire.
The team were very successful on the day with Katie Archibald and Katie Curtis both getting onto the podium.
The overall atmosphere at the race was collaborative and exciting. The crowds were out in force and the overwhelming support behind women’s racing was evident.
Huge thank you’s to Barney Storey & Brendan Fox at Sports Tours International for allowing me to shoot, Lara Thornton & Dee Marshall at Welcome to Yorkshire for hurrying through media accreditation.
Only a few images can currently be shown on my site, more will follow.
