Photographer's Note

600,000 spectators packed the banks of the Douro River in Porto and Gaia, Portugal for the eighth leg of the Red Bull Air Race World Series. Roads came to a standstill and trains were sold out as thousands flocked to watch the race, making it the biggest single-day sporting event in Portuguese history. Steve Jones (GBR/Team Matador) beat Mike Mangold (USA/Team Cobra) by 0.38 of a second in a thrilling battle and had his first victory of the season.
