First race for Dan

My friend Dan went racing, road bike, for the first time…

The best in Jersey were there, and he finished 9th, out of somewhere near 60 I would guess….

The guys is very good at riding… I am hoping he will race some more…

Here are a few snaps…

Rainy TT race

A few friends were taking part in a time trial road bike race, which happened to be going right past my house… So I grabbed the camera and took a couple of snaps…

That day was missable, raining, cold, windy, one of those days you would rather stay in bed and do nothing..

Anyway, I was up and off out with the camera and tripod, but the light was so poor, that no landscapes would be good enough.. So I ditched the tripod, set my camera to a slower exposure, got myself ready for some panning action, and waited for these guys to turn up..

I didn’t realise how fast they were… Perhaps my exposure was a little slow, and risky..
But a few turned out nice I think…

I think that these sort of shots stand out more than the average, and the fact that they are risky, and require a lot of practice makes it worth doing…
