Blue sky is nice but harsh shadows are not. I know how you feel.
Races starts here also around noon and most of the tracks are on the north side so it pretty much means I need to shoot into the sun.
Why they dont think photogs when they design those tracks

Very nice set, shadows are bit harsh but still some great action shots.

I really want to start photographing races and freestyle. What lens do you find yourself using the most?

Thanks everyone. The lens I use most now for MTB is my 16-35. You could get a 17-40 because I rarely use sub F4 on it....
