Best Race Faces of 2011

Here are some of my favorite photos of pain and determination from last year. Many are from Elite Track Nationals at the Home Depot Center Velodrome, where the intensity was amped up more than any other race of the season. Other photos are from Master’s States in San Diego, LAVRA and juniors races at the HDC Velodrome, and the Encino Velodrome.
