Back in busines

West Head, oh West Head. Normally for me this is a busy & difficult race to photograph. The number of grade, distances, low lap counts and masses upon masses of recretational riders. So since I am still quite crippled in my ability to move I need to apologise in advance that I basically stuck to the one spot for the entire race.

The weather was warm, at 6am my car was indicating a temp of 21c. The wind was slight and the roads clean. Grey clouds kept the harsh sun from frying everyone. The immediate thought, perfect conditions for a fast race. Although I suspect times today weren’t that quick. All grades were bursting with over 200 riders racing for bragging rights. 

My home for the race was the southern turnaround point, tip for riders, the big flag on the road is the turning point! I didn’t get to do much climbing of hills or rocks, just laying around the road. Hopefully a good mix of photos for everyone, check out full 190ish photo gallery at bottom of blog post.
