S & I went to the above race on Nov 18 and had a fun time watching the race. It was the first time I’d been to a ‘cross race, and it was interesting to watch, especially the juniors race – those kids were riding their hearts out. If they keep it up, no doubt they’ll be formidable riders as adults.

Lighting was mostly poor/dark, so many of the photos I took came out blurry since even at ISO1000 I couldn’t get very high shutter speeds. I should have brought a wide-angle lens, as my 70-200 f/4L was too long to get any panning shots, which left the remainder a bit static for my liking. Oh well, live and learn – sports photography is a subject that I still have a LOT to learn about!
