i was able to find some time and made it out to my first xc race. i must say it is much harder to shoot than downhill racing. i was a bit overwhelmed when the lead group was swarming towards me. i'm still learning so any cc or tips would be greatly appreciated.

hey Tony not too bad...few suggestions:

1. Looks a little washed out, trying boosting the contrast and black level a bit
2. Cutting off his foot at bottom not great, do you have any more frame at the bottom?
3. Image looks a little soft, what were your settings? Do any sharpening in post?
