    Some Picts I took at SOC 2011

    My wife raced Cat 1 XC on Friday and I went around looking for stuff to shoot. If anybody was in the DH competitions on Friday morning I might have some photos that I'd just give you.

    Examples....

    the last photo is Scott Chapin. He's an aptos local pro that now rides for HRS Rock Lobster. The guy is an all around machine...taking 1st in all kinds of comps...cyclocross, short track, pump track, etc. He rides Downielville and rips the dual slalom stuff too. He's gonna be around for years to come!

    AND he rocks a mean mustache!!!

    It was fun going thru some of these photos from last year. Here's one that I like. I enjoy seeing the intensity of the faces and eyes. Good stuff. I'll be down there again this year. I'm no pro, just having fun taking photos.

    Welcome.
    I was behind the fence. I was using a 200-500mm lens so I could get it pretty close, but it's not the fastest focusing lens out there so I missed a lot of shots. I had to kind of stake out a spot and be able to swing around with the monstrosity of a lens.
