As a mad keen snowboarder I love sport that involves speed. But as a somewhat lazy person when it comes to fitness, my exercise is more incidental. I ride my bike to get somewhere. But I’ll always ride over walking, because it’s faster. In peak hour, I’d rather ride than drive, because it’s faster. So that’s me, speed and purpose.
Mitch is 17 and full of speed and purpose. He might be going round in circles, but he does it with such determination it’s great to watch. On the day of this shoot we were at the end of 3 days straight of temps around 40 degrees. As soon as we finished, while I was sweating just packing up my camera gear, Mitch was on his bike sneaking in some extra training before his race that night. Gotta love someone with that much drive… or should I say pedal power?
