The B of the Bang

Originally coined by the British athlete Linford Christie, this is the mantra for all sprinters. It’s not enough to go when you hear the bang of the starter’s pistol, you anticipate it and go on the millisecond of the B. It has become a metaphor for the cat-like reactions all track cyclists work so hard to hone.


Taken at Manchester Velodrome by Cycling Legend’s resident photographer Andy Jones, this is the starter’s pistol signalling the start of a UCI Would Cup Madison race.

Printed in  on 240gsm satin paper. Delivered in postal tubes.

A3 size (11.69 inches x 16.53 inches. 297mm x 420mm)
