This snazzy photo of Tour de France King of the Mountains, Jens Voigt, earned the snapper a special thanks from the bike racer himself.
Amateur photographer Andrew Bradbury snapped Voigt racing down Castlegate in Huddersfield during the second leg of the Tour de France Grand Depart on Sunday.
Using online photo manipulation software Andrew, 44, of Springwood, turned his snap into black and white before re-colouring the dots on Voigt’s King of the Mountains jersey and helmet.
He posted the picture on Twitter expecting nothing more than a few retweets.
But the photo was picked up by Voigt himself, who was so impressed he asked to use it on his official Facebook profile.
On his Twitter page @thejensie the German ace tweeted: “May I ask your permission to use this pic also for my Facebook account?
“Respect, my friend. That is quite some art! Love it!”
Andrew, who tweets as @Montysradish, said: “I hadn’t had the camera very long so I was just figuring out how to use it.”
Mr Bradbury, a civil servant, added: “I certainly wasn’t expecting such a big reaction. It brightened up my evening.”
Born in East Germany, in 1971, Voigt has won two Tour de France stages.
His aggressive riding style and affable way of dealing with the media and public has made him particularly popular among cycling fans.
