John’s Special Worlds Cross Vs Paris Fashion Photo Gallery #10 – PezCycling News

Must read

World Photo Gallery: Our regular intrepid photographer, John Thomson, has been on the road to the World Cyclocross Championships in Hoogerheide and to Paris for the Fashion Week. As always he’s put together a rich and varied ‘Photo Gallery’ for our enjoyment. Take it away John…!

*** You can see more of John Thomson’s photo galleries HERE. ***

John Thomson: “This gallery includes shots from the 2023 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships in Hoogerheide, street style shots from the Paris Fashion Week SS23 shows, some scans from my French cycling magazine collection and a few other goodies. With almost 40K fans and double barriers around most of the course, Hoogerheide wasn’t the most photo friendly race for me. But still a great experience and even watching the race on replay was exciting. And great talking to all of the other cross fanatics who stood by the barrier for 6 hours on Saturday and Sunday to watch the races.”
