A week after the North Star Grand Prix we sit down to edit images while listening to Pandora stream songs by Isobel Campbell + Mark Lanegan, First Aid Kit and the Handsome Family etc. Music is our guide while facing the drama of the bike race but we are lost. Do we edit these images by stage, by photographer or some formal clue? No answer. So just consider this a gallery of some Elite women trying to win a stage, a climb, the race and their fight for half the road.
