Storm Endurance

I love cycling. There's no way to say it better than Patrick Brady did in Peloton Magazine's 2011 photo annual. "Think back to the first time you rode a bicycle. Not the first time you rode with training wheels or the first time someone held you up as you half pedaled, half coasted, but the first time you pedaled away under your own steam. It was a magical moment wasn't it? The world zipped by as you held the handlebar in your hands and idd a little dance with your feet." I can't say it any better than that, so with that some images from this weekends very long day of covering the Storm Endurance race in Sanford, NC.

 

Carvins Cove XC Race

On Sunday I went out to shoot a mountain bike race on a whim. I saw a tweet from another cyclist in town and didn't have any other plans. I unfortunately didn't plan the whole race out that well and ended up hiking through the woods for at least 5 miles (it felt close to 8). I won't do that again, next time a trail-map is going on the checklist.
