After admittedly being "nothing more than a flagrant piece of pack fodder" in the 1992 US Olympic Trials, James Startt left competitive cycling to pursue photography and journalism full-time. Now, after 15 years of photographing, writing and riding, Startt has worked with many of the world's major cycling publications and edits the official internet site for the Tour de France. His photographs are exhibited at the prestigious Agathe Gaillard Gallery in Paris and are in major international collections such as the Biblioteque Nationale in Paris. In 1999 he co-authored "In Pursuit of the Yellow Jersey: Bicycle Racing in the Year of the Tortured Tour" with Samuel Abt.
"Big, bold photographs and fast-pumping narrative, Startt offers a visual and visceral feast."
