"This is a classic, sort of old-school-looking shot -- the angulation of the rider, all bones and legs. The way that the shot is taken completely off-axis, too -- the horizon is almost vertical, which is opposed to how you would normally want to shoot, to show how vertical the rider is. The photographer flattened it out." -- Alex Hillinger
