I never understood why some photographers put giant watermarks on their photos...

1) It clearly doesn't work. People will share them anyhow.

I always give away my photos to riders. If their sponsors however want to use them for commercial purposes, I charge. This has been working rather well for me.

yea i agree. IM not a media guy and i can obviously see the 'pros' to selling things, but honestly.... (as it seems like most of these guys are just into photography (not as their livelyhood) like why make the wm huge. Also if i buy the photo, it's not even going to have the watermark anyways....so it's not like that's helping get their 'work' out there.

Here's another from a local CX race in Bromont Quebec.

This is Vincent Courcy of Suarez racing in the men's event:

A video of my last race, a short hillclimb, just 4km, but with extensive 15-20% sections. (5th overall, 1st masters)

Il Lombardia from the Ghisallo with crappy Iphone

It was a bit rainy, but no where near as cold as it has been some years. I think the inclusion of the Muro di Sormano and other overly steep climbs kinda sucks as it drastically reduces the pool of riders who could win. In it's current guise, only super light climbers will win this.

A blurry Tommy V giving it every strained expression he could muster, but the crowds were eating it up

Quintana, a cool customer

Biggest roar of the day, who could it be for....a dropped Contador who's muscling everything he can out of his legs to get over the top. Not a pretty sight. Gilbert came through a few cars ahead, also looking a shadow of his former self.
Image

For all those that went for a ride and never made it home. May you rest in peace.

Ave, very nice! You really seemed to take advantage of the sections where the grade leveled off -- looked like everyone else was trying to rest between steeper sections. Best part was the last 15 seconds!

Nice pics. I was watching the race maybe a hundred metres up the road from you!

Nice. That's a cool photo and a pretty wild looking hill climbing setup. Very minimal. Looks light.

Excellent. We rarely have mud here.

3rd at Catford is an awesome result, Jamie.

I was originally planning on doing it as well, but had to make a deal with the Mrs for a day each at the weekend, and I'd already agreed with some others from the club that we'd go for the team at the ECCA.
