I'm starting to feel the need for the 1D MarkIIN. My 30D just isn't cutting it in AI Servo. For static shots, they look wonderful. I think the AF on the 30D in AI Servo leaves a lot to be desired. I'm kind of disappointed with this weekends shots. Check out the gallery here: http://velocycle.smugmug.com/gallery/2622053#138369963

I just got my mark2n about a month ago. Sweet camera! I checked your site out and the photos look good. The only thing I'd suggest is get closer.

In a race like that you can stand in the street and get them as they are coming at you. If that's not safe wait for them on a corner. If THAT is not possible, wait until they are closer.

Here are a few that I took Saturday, some are OK, some are soft and some are a bit dark but regardless, here they are http://larryrosa.com/redlandsPrologue/

damn, it looks cold back East!

Damn right it was cold. This particular race was actually suppose to take place LAST Saturday. It was cancelled and rescheduled for this past Saturday because of a snow storm! Check out this gallery: http://leister.smugmug.com/gallery/2602567#137261426 It is my buddies gallery. He shot this at another race the day after the storm. There was still snow on the course! I know it's weird seeing snow in cycling shots, even for around here. I didn't go to this race because I thought it was surely cancelled.

Yep, I have to get down a lot lower next time. It's been hard here in the East. Even though the snow is melted, the ground is a muddy/mushy mess. You can't even walk on any grass, because the dirt underneath is super-saturated. Everything should start drying out this week.
