Olympics

If you missed it, here are links to galleries of the Men's and Women's Olympic Mountain bike races in London. Well....in Essex actually.

I must say these two Olympic events were unlike any other races this blog photographer has ever been too. Just a different feel to the racers (more serious and focused than usual), the fans (everybody was smiling the whole time), the coverage (cameras suspended in the air on cables; cameras on tracks that moved with the riders), and a hovering helicopter and blimp the whole race.

Another fun part was sprinting from place to place along the course, following the Montana flags. There were 15 of us that went to scream at Sam as he rode around the Olympic rings. Just bucket loads of fun.
