The final edition in our photographer gallery series, we present CJ Farquharson.

CJ is a specialist when it comes to shooting the women's peloton. This year she started at the Jayco Bay Classic in Australia before covering events all over the world, the Tour of Qatar, the Giro Donne, and the Open de Suede but to name a few.

CJ's passion for the women's professional cycling scene is clear in every photo she takes. Whether her photos have been carefully crafted, or are taken on the fly, CJ never seems to miss a beat. We look forward to working with CJ again in future years as she continues to provide world class coverage of the best women's races.
