Annual bike race on Sunday around our tiny town of about 2500. Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer, Chris Horner are "competing" in the pro division so it's going to be jammed with not much chance of moving or changing lenses soo... Location? Which lens (below)? AIServo mode? single point or all points? Flash? Sorry if these have been asked and answered. Usually just a small town event but I was all hyped up for this even before the celebs were anounced.

I'm guessing you are talking about the Nevada City Classic. It is a 1.1 mile course so you will have plenty of opportunity to get a lot of shots. The climb will obviously be packed but will be the best place to shoot. I like to shoot close and wide with a flash. Yes Servo and single point. Here are a few of my threads in the past where you can pull the exif to get some ideas of shutter speed and what not.

Thanks Danny for the pointers. Yes, I live in Nevada City. Will hopefully get some worthy of posting. I'm just more used to shooting portraits...
