Cyclocross, Melburn

Such a beautiful day yesterday (Sunday) here in Melbourne and the first round of the Melburn Cyclocross was on at Lysterfield Lake Park. My husband and I went to spend some of the afternoon there to watch the bike race and for me to get my hand back in at some action photography. I miss the bike races. My husband was racing up until his accident some months ago so we haven’t been to one for sometime. The race was open to both juniors and adults in several categories.

This is just some of the action I captured yesterday:

Getting ready for the ride

One of the great things about where we live is the number of bike tracks locally and a great mountain biking facility less than 10 mins drive away.  My husband is a keen mountain biker and here he is getting ready for a ride.

Vic MTB Enduro in Albury

On the weekend my husband was participating in an MTB race at Albury. It was a 6 hour enduro and he was in a duo and there were two more friends in another duo. Their team name is Team Sally.  They’re in pink tops. If you want to see all the pics then click here.

Below are just two samples of the action last Saturday.

MTB racers getting 'air'

It’s always fun watching riders get ‘air’ as they go over the jumps. It’s even more fun trying to catch it on camera at just the right moment!

The face says it all!

When you’re at these MTB races you certainly see some interesting face expressions!  These are a small selection from the Castlemaine MTB race last Sunday.
