Behind the Shot
Just moments after Lindsey Grace Whiddon took this shot, the front rider crashed. “She just tumbled off her bike and it crashed into a tree,” she says. Lindsey took the injured rider to the local medical center and stayed with her until she was discharged.
This photo has “a little more meaning” to Whiddon. The rider was a stranger just moments before, but suddenly Lindsey was holding her hand in the ER and there was an instant bond between the two. “It was such an intimate human experience,” she says.
