Just to let you know Mikey Sylvestri was first in Pro with 3:22.5. He was 9 seconds faster! If you have a pic of a kid riding a Synicate painting V10, thats Mikey.

Thanks for catching that! I'm an idiot and missed where it ended on the previous page... Unfortunately I don't...

I can't remember if that guy crashed. I remember he was going pretty fast and looked way sketchy coming down that.

great photos... love the lighting in the first one - is this all natural light or is there a flash in there somewhere?

Thanks! I was using 2 flashes (285's) on each side in all of them. I wish my 20D had that kind of dynamic range! I think they were each on full power most of the time.

Is this a USACycling sanctioned race? I thought that new rules required DH participants to wear fullface helmets???
He was in the all mountain class. :D

I should be at the August and September ones. Not sure if i'll be racing / shooting practice or just shooting the race though.

Good to meet you too, Dirt!

Wow, great shots!!! I missed the race due to pre-deployment training. It looks as if I will not make any races this year as I'm pretty much gone for 4-6 weeks at a time which takes me through Christmas till we are on the plane and gone.

Maybe I'll catch some of you guys up there on a rare regular day off and be able to ride with some legends!!
