Rouleur photographer Benedict Campbell mingled with the stars backstage at the opening night of the Rouleur Classic.

 

And what a night it was. Everywhere you turned, there was a world champion, a legend of the sport or a familiar face, shooting the breeze, signing autographs or posing for selfies.
