Mark Cavendish

Ghent Wevelgem Gallery One

By Neil Hero

When your 5D Mark II is having lens problems you do what you can. At the start of the Ghent-Wevelgem we discovered our Canon 35mm 1.4L series lens would only focus on objects five feet or less. We had brought this camera for graphic designer Neil Donnelly to help us out in the tight spots of the race. Trained in the graphic arts and hardened by limitations of paper size, pantone swatches, budgets and art directors, Neil took up the challenge with liberating glee. Five feet would prove to be enough.
