After swim in his pool and quick breakfast, Cadel jumps on his BMX and heads off to the local cafe to catch up with some of the locals.

Despite being in a car, keeping ahead of Cadel during his training was a little harder than anticipated. No matter how far ahead we where so I could include a sweeping coastal shot, the gap closed quickly as my viewfinder was filled with a cyclist barrelling towards me.

Quick dip in the pool prior to the interview. The water was freezing.

My assistant Andrew prelit and tested the spot so as Cadel rode past we could simply slip him into the area for a few minutes, then he could continue on his merry way.

Choice of transport, his old BMX bike to fang around his local area
