Funding the future

I posted a photo of me in tie from a week or so ago… that was my first job interview in oh, about, say… 32 years? It’s the first job I submitted my resumé to. I did follow that up with submitting my resumé to one more position late last week. So…I heard today they …

Say hello to Stumpy

Ever since Andrea and I started mountain biking in places that actually had mountains (like Pisgah or the Kingdom Trails) I’ve felt like my old Grey Gary (a Gary Fisher HiFi Plus) wasn’t the right bike for the big descents and trails. It’s been a great bike to me, never let me down including the …

A different look

My “work clothes” have changed quite a bit in the past 2 years (yes, it has been almost that long) so it was a little odd to get back into a previous look yesterday. I did though. Here, you can see for yourself… a shot from earlier this month taken in Louisville KY and another …

Paris-Ancaster prep

In addition to the CX Worlds, my Jan/Feb has been filled with thoughts of a Paris-Roubaix tribute race held up here for what will be 20 years this coming April. Paris-Ancaster (known as P2A or P-A) has been the start of the season for a lot of cyclists in southern Ontario for years and the …

A change of pace

Thanks to a friend I’ve gotten to know through the cycling community I had the pleasure of covering a Chinese New Years event. I very much enjoyed it! I was surprised to find that the coverage I need to provide wasn’t much different than the cycling races I normally shoot. And the media scrums were …

A Canadian CX World Champion

I had the pleasure of interviewing a number of people over the course of the week, this one is my personal favourite. Jim Laird won Canada’s only Rainbow Jersey at the CX worlds… in the Masters 60-64 category. I thought that he’s a really nice guy when I met him. But you can decide that …

Louisville2013: wrapping it up

I’m not quite done sorting photos (about 4500 from today) but I’ve gotten the elite men and women galleries so I’ll take care of the Junior and U23 tomorrow. I’m too tired to be capable of doing a good job, 14 hours today after a string of Masters events has me run down. Still… here …

Every Day Seems to be Adventure Filled Here in Louisville

I’ll file a report from today when I have time. Meanwhile… The organizers and the UCI have taken drastic measure due to impending flood of the venue for CX Worlds. Here’s a link to the UCI communique. Seems the river will rise during the night on Saturday beyond what they feel they can safely hold …

Wow! Louisville Delivers Big

The preliminaries are over, the racing is full on. And the weather is still playing its part. The temperature dropped overnight and the morning had snow for some of the races. Perfect CX madness. One note of disappointment: the site really isn’t helping media figure out what’s going on. No useful start lists, no …
