CXTO

Edible medals

Cyclocross racing in Toronto got a big boost with the recent CXTO event in Christie Pits Park this past Saturday. And it was a fun event to cover. Lots of people I know were there, a good turnout of racers and good crowds. I haven’t finished processing my photos yet, in part because there was …

The 2015 Canadian Cyclocross Championships

Winnipeg. Home to the past two editions of the Canadian CX Nats. This year’s version was even better than 2014 too, if that’s possible. They made some minor but significant changes to the course, the weather turned out just a great as the year before, and there were awesome crowds for both days of racing. …

2015 CONTACT Photography Festival

I mentioned an exciting upcoming event a couple of times, saying that I’d provide an update when it was officially announced. Well it is now official. Peter Kraiker Photography is presenting an exhibit of 18 framed limited edition photographs, all of them directly in the cross-hairs of my two passions. Photography and Cycling. I’ve called …

Back To Back Bike Events

It’s been a busy weekend and it will be an even busier week ahead. And I’m very much enjoying it all. After having a little down time after Shelter Valley I ended up having two very different events to shoot this weekend. The first one involved around 75 people, some lovely quiet forest trails and …

As I’m getting caught up on all the social media stuff that I’ve missed during the day, one item caught my eye. It’s been 35 years since the Oscar winning “Breaking Away” came out, wow! The movie was amazing on many levels when it came out… 1979 wasn’t a time when bike racing was really …

Moab Book 1: Getting There

It began with the forging of the Big Rings… three were given to the mountain bikers. (sorry, I couldn’t resist some LOTR-esque start once I decided to make this a 3 part tale). This trip was certainly an adventure, nothing like the trip Frodo went on though as I didn’t see a single dragon, troll …

Moab Trip, in Three Parts

I’ve decided to break the trip down into three parts: my journey getting there, up to meeting Bob and spending a few days in Moab learning from him going to Vegas to pick up Andrea, the time we shared riding and camping around Moab, and then heading back to Vegas the trip back to Toronto …

From Majorca and Brisbane via Andorra, to Canada… an interview with Svein Tuft

I’m not quite sure why but I quite enjoy talking with Svein… perhaps it’s because he has such a unique and refreshing perspective. Or that he’s not afraid to speak honestly about topics that matter in the same way that he’ll talk about the playful side of life. In any event, this is the second …

Writing… A Recurring Theme

I’ve just finished writing another feature article for Pedal Magazine, I can’t help but think back to the one I wrote about a year ago… http://nextchapter.kraikerphoto.com/2012/12/first-magazine-cover.html

2013 Cyclocross Season Wrap-up

While I didn’t get to cover much of the cycling season this year I feel like it did end on a high note and I’ll take as a positive sign for the season to come. On top of my own distractions there was also the late-season doping revelations that took some of the fun out …
