Second day of racing for HoCo2xCx, Rockburn Cross, had a bunch of short punchy hills that took a tool by the end of the race. In terms of my race, not much to say here beside I didn’t do as hoped. A bad start, a crash on the last lap to give up several spots, and some weak climbing did me in.
That’s okay, it just adds to list of reasons to go to Taneytown, MD for the MABRA Cyclocross championships next weekend. I was looking forward to a low key weekend, but uh yeah, I like bike. So, see you guys on the 28th.
To be honest, I liked this set of photos better than Schooley Mill. You can view the full set of pictures from Rockburn on Picasa.
On a side note, I’m taking these pictures with an 18 – 55 mm lens, which means I’m right up on the tape and not getting a ton of the pain and detail from everyone’s sweat and dirt filled faces. I’m considering purchasing a new zoom lens for my Cannon Rebel.
Another way capture the action, could be a helmet cam. I’d be expanding into a new medium, but I’ve used iMovie…once… that makes me semipro. I have to say CXhairs.com does a great job with the cross previews and recaps, so the market might be saturated.
What do you guys think? What’s worth the investment? Leave your vote for helmet cam or zoom lens in the comments.
Also, if anyone has experience with zoom lenses and has a recommendation for one that is a good value, let me know.
I couldn’t help it a few more choice photos after the jump
