Last Saturday's shoot was a little different from my usual bicycle racing gig.
The local Cyclocross racing series featured their annual "spooky cross" race where most of the racers wore costumes. Very funny watching the riders hopping the barricades or crashing in the sand trap wearing dresses and wigs!

For those not familiar with cyclocross, it features road bicycles with knobby tires over courses that are part road, grass, sand traps, short hills and a barricade that you either dismount and run over. If you're very talented, upi can "bunny hop" the barricade while staying on your bike. This kind or racing is huge in Belguim and recently become very popular in the states.

The best part was the kiddies race. They were so cute and adorable riding their bikes all dressed up. Here's some shots - as usual, comments & criticisms welcome. You can see the rest of the gallery here: http://www.daverphoto.com/Cycling/UTCX-10-26-13-SPOOKYCROSS

You've just gotta' love the CX crowd. Everyone is out to have fun!

Great captures!

Thx, Mike You're right the CX crowd is a lot of fun. We even get a taste of Belguim when the "Saturday's Waffles" food truck sets up at the races. Too bad they don't have Belgian Jupiler beer!


#5, all together now...awwwwwwww :smile: great shots, looks like a load of fun. You used the flash nicely as well.

Thx, Chris. The flash was challenging since most of the barricade shots were pretty much shooting into the sun. Some images came out well, others not so good.
