Hey guys,

I Had the pleasure of shooting some of the Ontario Championship Road Race, This was my very first time shooting anything like this.. and was shocked to see just how hard it really was i mean having such a short time frame to actually line up the shot and take it. Never would have thunk pedals cycles could go so fast.

Nice shots. If I can make a suggestion, get down closer to the ground to get a better perspective. The lower the better, I find. Also if you shoot from a more head on position you get more lens time with the riders.

With time and practice you will get used to the frenetic pace of shooting cyclists. (external link)

Well, it ain't hard if you're just picking riders at random. There's enough of 'em. However, if you've targeting specific riders, or of the win ... then you've got to be on your game.

Nice shots BTW. I'd crop 'em tighter for more impact. ;)
