Oh Linus, what has Veeral done to you?

Or alternatively, the best cycling photography I've seen except for Krisof Ramon, the Belgian photographer, whom Patel acknowledges. In case you're thinking this will be mainly Australian subjects, think again. The photos, as you might expect, are all black and white. I found the photo of Gerdemann the most surprising/shocking. This one goes ell beyond aging boy band star. Robbie McEwen needs to move on from making chamois cream to setting up a partnership with Lancome or another cosmetics company. If even Linus can look old before his time, and Durbridge can look almost as old as Klier, I'm sure there's money to be made.

The camera is brutal in all the shots though, but I'll be interested to see which ones you like best. Get the fainting couch ready. Enjoy!
