Today Full Moon Vista organized the Cobbs Hill Cyclocross. While some months ago I had ideas of participating this time after taking photos last year, I did very little training these last months so that was not an option really. So spectating it was but I wanted to try other shots than just the typical cycling race photos that I took last year and during the Omnium in August. Whether I succeeded will be in the eye of the beholder. I did get some cool shots using my fisheye lens but there were also many shots that seemed like good ideas when shooting but turned out to be of the “what was I thinking?”-category when viewed afterwards on the computer.
I ran into Bruce and I got to admire Yellow Bike. Paul participated in the masters category, finished 8 – very good, I say. He had transformed his old Bianchi into a cross bike and rode it instead of the mountain bike last year. He said he felt a lot faster. The weather certainly allowed for fast riding – dry, sunny, nicely warm. Michelle also rode. On her fixie no less. A cyclocross ride on a fixed gear bike… have you seen the climb up to the reservoir? Do that in fixed gear ohh six, seven times? Craziness, but she did it. Speaking of weather, it was an absolutely beautiful day with the autumn colors in full swing.
Anyways, in the gallery as usual.
