It’s been a bevy of bikes and cycling contests of late in Bend. I photographed a few of the recent USA Cycling events, including the Masters Road National Championships and the Mountain Bike Marathon Nationals, and also shot my first cyclocross race at the local Thrilla series.
It’s a race itself covering these events as you’re constantly moving between spots and running to try to catch riders at different points on the courses. Lots of fun though. I especially enjoyed cyclocross – what a great group of riders and fans, not to mention some sweet light. For inspiration, these guys in Portland shoot some killer cyclocross: http://www.pdxcross.com/
