Performance enhancing drugs in cycling – not any more. In 2009 top cycling teams are simply beaming replicant riders into the peloton from low earth orbit. Captured for the first time is direct evidence – an infrared image of a rider rematerialising. Visible only in the near infrared spectrum, beyond human vision, this amazing event was captured on the last roll of Kodak Infrared EIR film on the planet. Kodak is directly implicated in the sudden removal of this film from the shelves and the decommissioning of its manufacturing facilities. It is believed hard economic times have forced them into debt with the evil professional cycling cabals who demanded the film ‘disappear’ lest their armies of tireless replicants be exposed.
Captured at the Tour Down Under 2009 on Kodak Infrared EIR film. No photoshop other than sharpening and minor levels adjustments.
