I don't have time for the full story on our trip up to Pennsylvania to cover the Wilderness 101
this past weekend, but let's just say that it was brutally fun. Liz
& I didn't get out of town until almost midnight, and we pulled up to the starting while the race organizer, Chris, was on the P.A. announcing, "Ten minutes! Ten minutes till the start folks! Let's get up to the line!"
I'm working up a story on tandem mountain bike racing, and we were lucky enough to be able to see not one, but two tandem teams in action at the Wilderness 101. Rob and Sarah Lichtenwalner were out there, as well as Vicki and Mark Schow. I also got a chance to photograph Tinker Juarez,
probably the most iconic guy in mountain biking today.
I didn't spend my time photographing the race leaders coming across the finish line. Instead I hiked into the trails and set up "light traps:" remote camera flashes in a wireless, TTL network. I got some awesome shots, and I'll be posting more on this page as well as my photo website
in the next couple of days.
, thanks for the help!!! I
