The Observer captioned this photograph: In this picture the photographer not only stimulates the imagination but also conveys the speed and rhythm of cyclists, racing at the N.C.U. Meeting of Champions at Herne Hill yesterday. David Moore, a young Australian photographer, is seeking to overcome the 'frozen' look of the ordinary action picture by developing this technique to produce a deliberately impressionist effect.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
