WORLD CUP ASTANA: HOY v. DMITRIEV 

Still not too much media coming out of last weekend’s UCI World Cup event in Kazakhstan but this shot pretty much sums it up.  Sir Chris Hoy nips Russian challenger Denis Dimitriev to the line in the Sprint final.

Photo found on Domestique.

P.S. Anyone who looks at this photo and calls it even, take a look at where the front wheels are in contact with the track surface in relation to the finish line.  It may be just a few millimeters but that’s how races are won at the velodrome.
