UCI Road World Championships 2017

Primož Roglič - Slovenian cyclist, Bergen, 2017

Primož Roglič, who came 2nd in today's Men Elite Individual Time Trial.

This week, the UCI Road World Championships 2017 are taking place here in Bergen, Norway. The city has really come to life, and the streets are filled with happy people, flags, and bicycles. The atmosphere is amazing, and I am so proud of my city for pulling this off. Most of the city center has been completely closed to traffic, and people are walking everywhere.

Even though this kind of sport photography is about as far from night photography as one can get, I decided to give it a try. Keeping in mind that I don't have a decent lens for this kind of photography, and that I've never done it before, I'm quite happy with the results. Not too shabby for a first-timer?

They went by so quickly, so not all of the photos are completely in focus, but look at those faces - they are so focused on what they are doing.
