Found out yesterday lunchtime that there was cycle racing on that night in the city centre. It was rather surprising, seeing 2 blocks of the city centre closed off.
By the time I arrived cycling was well underway, the eventual winner had already pulled out a comfortable 2-3 second lead, which he extended to over 20 seconds by the end of the 1 hour race. The 2 guys in this shot seemed equally matched throughout the race, although to be honest it’s difficult to tell one cyclist from another sometimes. I have put the rest of the photos in a gallery on Smugmug.
Taking the shots was a lot more technically challenging than I expected. It was impossible to freeze their motion, so I had to use my pretty ropey panning technique, which I’ll have to brush up on for sure. For Nikon D70 geeks, this was my first photo shoot using the Fotogenetic EV3 curve.
After this, I headed down to the Science Centre on the clyde. Again. Some photos from there may follow, although I have altogether far too many shots taken down there.
