Some cyclists traveled hundreds of miles to participate in this national championship event, but one of the best teams came from just down the road from this velodrome, barely one mile away.

Nice. I was really surprised to see the budget that some of these colleges (universities?) have for cycling teams. (I was at the road champs) They have BIG team buses, towing BIG trailers. Amazing.

Judging by the jerseys, it looks like they are all significantly sponsored. Seems odd for a college sport.

Nice shots!

It's not odd when you think about how much money the college probably gives them. Now some of these teams are an exception to that, but I have a friend who's gone to Junior CX worlds twice now and he's at U of A and they basically don't know anything about his riding abilities.

And yeah, nice shots!

Money the college gives who?

I was just making the point that NCAA athletes cannot take sponsorships, but these programs obviously can. I'm sure it takes a lot of the financial burden off of the school.

He's just got aero shoe covers on... Nothing unusual about that.

I meant the cycling teams. I would think most schools would balk at the cost of providing bikes and kit for a full cycling team.

I wonder what the rules are for collegiate sponsorship on their clothing. I see that the kits worn here have one company name only. I'm certainly no expert, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that some colleges like Lees-McRae and Marian (Indiana) give full cycling scholarships - and they have GREAT riders riding on their teams. Lindsey-Williams (LWC) has a full cycling program as well. Big powerhouse school.

Second pic here shows a rider from Fort Lewis College out of Colorado, here's their trailer:

The University of Wisconsin has a cycling team out of Madison, but they don't have a trailer!

This velodrome was a great place for photography. Rather than being restricted to a grandstand, you could place yourself on a paved walkway that surrounds the track and get as close as common sense allowed. The close location meant for very good angles and distances. A laid-back and uncrowded atmosphere also helped.

As for the panning motion blur, 1/50-1/60 second worked well. That technique was reserved for the nine-lap team pursuit events because those races offered multiple attempts to get one decent shot.

Cycling isn't a sanctioned NCAA sport, so it doesn't fall under the same rules that NCAA athletes do as far as sponsorship goes..
