On Sunday, I decided to go down to Hamilton to shoot the 2010 NZ Cyclocross Championships. It was not for an assignment or the organizers, it was just for me. I have been quite busy doing a lot of admin work the last couple of weeks that I have hardly touched a camera, let alone get out and actually shoot something of interest to me.
For those of you not familiar with Cyclocross, it is a combination of mountain biking and road riding. It is really big in Europe and getting big in the States. Riders generally ride hybrid road bikes with wider tires and different brakes than a normal road bike. The races are also generally held in the Fall/Winter months to ensure the wet, muddiest conditions possible, plus it gives the roadies something to do in their off season.
Here are a few select images to give you an idea of what it was like:
