Wicks and Scott on top for Bend's last cross race before Natz. (photos)

Great day of racing at Crossaflixion final in Bend OR.

Despite frigid morning, the sun came out and made for an epic day of cross up at the Seventh Mountain Resort in Bend OR. With both Wicks and Trebon (Kona) showing up, the races were hot enough to melt the ice.

The ladies battle was won by Renee Scott (Sunnyside Sports) who took the lead mid race and created a gap too large to surpass.

Sierra Point Disco Party, BASP #3, Nov 14th 2009

So, Team Oakland is sponsoring this particular race in the BASP series. Automatically it becomes a bigger deal, at least in my world. We have to represent, and do right by our sponsors. Working w/ Pilarcitos for going on 7 years now makes things easier, as we have developed an outstanding relationship with them. They did up the banners and entry way to the race, and the team showed up and partied and the rest of the teams showed up and partied and ended up being a great night.

Sierra… Continue

Surf City #3, Watsonville Fairgrounds Nov 1st 2009

Surf City did a double race weekend for their series, not sure how it turned out for them, but since I work on Saturdays, and I'm already taking the Saturday off for the BASP night race (we are sponsoring the race, after all...) I get to miss the Halloween race. Darn, I like festival races. So the next day, Dia de los Muertos, I go down and hit it up. The course this time was a mix of Surf City and Peak races of the past few years. The course stayed up on the...East(?) portion of the grounds… Continue

BASP #2 Coyote Point

Pilarcitos had to come up with a course in a tertiary location in order to keep the series going smooth. The original location, Candlestick Park is a victim of park closures, and negotiations w/ the East Bay Park and Rec Dept regarding an East Bay location got stalled by one well placed ass. So adjust, Coyote Point is a great place. They came through with permits and the crew designed a course that stayed away from the beach and flats that will be preserved for the series final in Dec. So using… Continue

race photography help needed

I love shooting Cross as well as other sporting events, but it is tough to get good coverage alone. I can't get the finish or podium shots if I am at the hurdles. And I can't pass out cards if I am shooting.

I am looking for a couple people to help. I could exchange a photo for passing out my link and business cards. I could use an additional photographer who knows their way around an event and DSLR.


drop me a note.

Half-way Through the Season and Finally Feeling Good

Well, the WCA season is in full swing with 5 races left and I'm finally feeling good about my performance. This past weekend in Milwaukee marked the first time so far this season that I felt competitive AND had a good time. The course was tough without being overly hilly or lung-taxing. Sure, I was breathing heavily but it was no suffer overload like some of the earlier WCA races. I felt the Washington Park CX was a perfect opportunity to practice and utilize the basic CX skills and… Continue
