Better later-er-er than never-er-er.

Potomac Velo Club's Wednesdays at Wakefield series is in full swing. In fact, it's 75% done and, were it not for a fortuitous thunderstorm this afternoon, would be 100%.

I was out of town for the first race, but shot the second and third. The shot above might be my favorite (personally shot) mountain bike race photo ever. I tried to re-create the magic the following race, but the lack of dust in the air made the shots less magical.

The third race in the series may have been the first W@W race at which I spent zero time shooting the downhill woop-de-do section. That section usually gets you the best air-catching shots, but after years of parking myself there, I need to find new angles. Stay tuned for the resulting photos.
