At The Races

As my love of photography (some might say picture taking) continues, this summer I have tried to get out and shoot some races. In some cases I did it to earn a few dollars, in other cases such as my recent trip down to Alma to shoot the low-key Thursday night MTB time trials, I did it for the practice and a want to help promote the series in which my LBS is one of the prime supporters.

2017 Sweat Shaker Photos

I drove up to the trails at Mid Michigan Community College on Saturday and spent a few hours taking photos of the 2017 Sweat Shaker XC Mountain Bike Race. I’m still in the process of editing the 300+ images but have uploaded about half of them to the Junk Miles Media Smugmug site for purchasing (if you desire). The rest will be added in the next 48 hours.

In the coming days, I’m sure I will be posting up some of my favorite images from the race. Looking forward to getting to more races this summer, and more importantly getting back up to MMCC to actually ride my bike!

Thanks for looking.

2017 Fat Bike Nationals

This past Saturday I drove down to Grand Rapids to watch and photograph the Men’s and Women’s Pro Fat Bike Nationals. Lucky for me the Pro races didn’t start until 11 AM so I had plenty of time to sleep in, eat breakfast, watch soccer, and drink numerous cups of coffee before making the hour and a half drive. Unlucky for the race, Grand Rapids was unusually void of snow. While the absence of snow on a January day in Grand Rapids was indeed odd, it sure made for some fast racing!

Oh, the Michigan Spring

Last week was an optimal early spring week for getting time on the bike. Sadly, this week has been crap. The weather was rainy, blustery, and cool; riding was limited and time spent indoors “doing stuff” was high. Thankfully on Friday the storms had finally moved out of the area, the high wind warnings receded, and I finally got out on my bike for a ride. A ride in cool 35˚ “spring” temperatures, but a ride nonetheless.
