Yuzuru Sunada’s favourite photos of 2013

Part three of our series of favourite photos for the 2013 season is by Yuzuru Sunada. This Japanese photographer has been shooting cycling for over 20 years; he spends much of the season living out of a suitcase in hotels around the world but has offices near Monza, Italy and his home in Toyama, Japan. As one of RIDE‘s regular contributors since 2001, you can see his work in every issue. His selection of 15 images have all been issued in black and white…

*Intro to the series: As we ride towards the end of 2013, RIDE Media will be publishing a collection of images from some of our valued contributors. We asked some of our regular photographers to send a selection of shots from the season with a little explanation of what makes the photo special. While some of the images in these galleries may have been published in RIDE Cycling Review (or elsewhere) beforehand, this is our way of saying farewell to 2013 and thanks for the memories. There were some special moments throughout the season and I think you’ll agree that these photos capture the spirit of cycling.
