Why Shootthebikerace? Why not? No not with a gun, or a crossbow. That wouldnt be right. With a camera, thats the only legitimate way to do it.
I enjoy cycle sport in all its forms, particularly road racing and especially at the highest level, i always have done. More recently i have moved into photographing it. And i enjoy that too.
I go all over the country as quite a few of us do. We are all looking for the picture that sets us apart from the field, and i guess none of us has found it yet as we are still out there doing it.
My style is to try and look sideways. I know its a bike race and of course i have to take the obligatory long shot full of riders but beyond that i like to get the portraits, the candids and yes the crashes. So on the premise that there must be more of us out there who do just the same i thought i would set this blog up to share views, photos and advise. Along the way it would be good to opine about other non-related matters that get our goats and have a laugh at each others and the cyclist expense.
So here it is. Comment, send pictures, just gob off!
