Davis + Connie is a short film, produced by Rapha and Ben Ingham, about two of America’s finest and most inspiring road racers, Davis Phinney and Connie Carpenter-Phinney. For anyone who saw them race, Davis and Connie came to represent the best in American road racing, combining bold racing with uncompromising attitudes on and off the bike. Their careers saw them move from domination of domestic races to international and Olympic success.

As the cyclocross season fast approaches, photographer Ben Ingham takes a look at some of the more famous race tracks for Rapha during the periods when they aren’t faced with crowds of supporters and racers. 

Rapha look at some of the scenery we can come to expect over the next couple of days in Yorkshire (with obligatory product placement).
