Who am I

I'm OBSESSED with cycling

My name is Juan Felipe Rubio; I'm a photojournalist from Colombia with a deep interest in cycling dating way back to my childhood. In the early eighties my dad went on tour all over Europe with the Varta Café de Colombia team as a logistics manager. I have many memories from that time, that shaped an almost cult-like love for the sport.

I'm in love with Colombia. It's so mountainous and gorgeous and no wonder why it's home to some of the best cyclists in the world. It is my life mission to show this beauty through my photos.

I've traveled to a lot of places thanks to cycling photography, I hope this list goes on forever:

 

  • UCI road world championships in Italy and Spain.

  • UCI Tour Colombia.

  • Vuelta a Colombia.

  • Urban Downhill in Manizales.

  • Keirin in Tokyo.

  • UCI BMX world cup in Bogotá,

  • Urban Cycling in Amsterdam.

  • Travelers in Alto de Letras.

  • Russian Chicanos in St Petersburg.

  • High altitude Gran Fondo in Cusco.
     

Some of my photos have been published in printed magazines and exhibited in galleries.

I've also been invited to a couple talks about cycling photography.

I'm a long-time collaborator of FUNchaves, Esteban Chaves's nonprofit, and I also shoot for german sports photo agency Sportograf.

I'm the founder of an alternative sports photography collective: La Vuelta es Así
