    Over the past two months, I've been working on a slideshow on mountain biking in California, the riders and the riding. I've been shooting at events for it and doing photo shoots just for it. I finally have the teaser done. Keep in mind, the teaser is really basic compared to how the completed version will be. Let me know what you think.

    Thanks for the comments! I've heard it was a bit fast from people, but it's good to hear you liked the speed. I was at Fontana this past weekend and got some shots for it.

    Here's a shot of Lovebunny (with the megaphone), Dirtymike (with the moon) and dhmike (with the beer) from the weekend.

    Looks like Dirty was hoping youd take an inside lane and catch a bar end!

    Okay thanks. Hope he gets better soon. After I see the samples and decide to go with them, i'd like to get the whole amount of them in the next two weeks if possible.

    Nice work man...I think it's time for you to invest in a video camera, or at least a 7d with all those stop-motion sequences! :D
