Simple beauty, in that shot. Something about man and machine, perfectly aligned for a single purpose… i.e. to go fast. It looks so easy, so simple, so graceful. You cannot see the thousands of hours of work that have gone into making it look that easy. You cannot see the man’s body going full tilt, you cannot feel his pain (yes, there is loads of pain) as his muscles drive him forward and as his reflexes keep him on the track.

It’s whats behind the grace that is so powerful. It’s what you cannot see that’s the most important part of achieving what you see. What you see and what is going on in that photo, 2 totally different things.

Grace. What a beauty.
