MTB and CX all in the same weekend

Two days, two different races. And I used two different cameras to test all my gear out ahead of the upcoming Canadian Cyclocross National Championships in Winnipeg.

For the first race, a mountain bike event called the Singletrack Challenge held at Hardwood Hills north of Toronto, I only used my 7D and primarily with the 70-200 F2.8 lens. It was overcast with a little rain and lots of golden leaves still on the trees. Here are a few photos:


The second event was in Niagara Falls, south and west of TO. The day started out cold and overcast but by the time the afternoon race was on it was a beautiful sunny day. For this cyclocross race I only used my 5D mkiii. And I stuck with my go-to lens (the 70-200). The fact that the 5D is a full frame makes it a very different lens on that body so I had to remind myself to get closer than usual. I really like the way it behaves though… very fast to focus and incredibly crisp images. Have a look:

And of course I have galleries up on my website… the Singletrack Challenge is the last one I’ll be putting up on my website. All the new galleries are going to the new Kraiker.Photography home.
