A Brit a Day [#155]
Here is British pro-cycling Team Sky's Russell Downing of Yorkshire winning stage 2 of the 2010 Critérium International. The caption I have on file with this photo says Downing is reacting to the win, presumably smiling, but I have my suspicions it's a mixture of joy with a grimace of pain. Since Downing's strength is sprinting, I imagine he won this stage after really turning up the gas, pushing past protesting muscles. Downing also won overall at last year's tour of Ireland.
