One of my favorite local traditions among John's mountain biking buddies is the annual Broduro, a one day race consisting of timed stages going down local trails often built, maintained, and loved by the guys who organize the event. Despite the name, ladies are indeed welcome.
To me this is one of the most fun races to photograph because everyone is out there having fun, I know a bunch of the riders, and the group riding tend to stick together so I can watch and photograph everyone without missing riders or stages. Plus the riders tend to look forward to my photos, which honestly makes shooting a lot more fun.
For this race, I got to test out my new Canon 100mm f/2 for the first time. Unfortunately my 1D Mark IV started having some electronic issues and would occasionally render some wacky exposures before reading an error message and needing to be shut down. I ended up sending it in for servicing shortly after.
Equipment used: Canon 1D Mark IV, Canon 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye, Canon 50mm f/1.4, and Canon 100mm f/2.
