Manual For Speed

Manual For Speed is a project by photographers Emiliano Granado and Daniel Wakefield Pasley documenting the world of competitive cycling from training to race day. You may have seen Emiliano’s work before in the form of Outlier lookbooks and Daniel’s square format photographs of Rapha Continental rides. Some of my favorite photos on the site are of the of fans that flock to races, standing by for the riders to pass by their staked out spot on the course. The tailgating fans are a big part of the sport (dare I say culture?) that you only get to see so much of on tv, they look pretty excited when the peloton is passing by but for a better part of the race they’re just hanging around waiting and imbibing.
