2009 05-05 Another Tuesday, another race. Unfortunately, pictures of races on Tuesdays mean that I wasn't in the race. I managed to tear a spoke from my hub, and called it a night about 1/2 way through. The course wasn't one that suited my skills all that well anyway (big dudes need flat finishes, not uphill!). Last time my bike broke, I was without my 70-200 f/2.8 which I love so much for bike races, and I vowed that I'd carry it with me every week so I didn't miss any more race shots.
I played with this one quite a bit in Photoshop, trying to accentuate the emotion and apparent pain...and this one was on the 'easy' part of the course!
