Montrose Mud Moto Mayhem

This weekend was the first Montrose EnduroCross race of the year. I got to go and take photos again. It was a terrible, rainy, muddy, sloppy, gross mess. And I loved it! 🙂 The racing was great, although a little slower and rougher than normal. Fantastic day of racing!

September Horse Races

Saturday and Sunday of this week brought the final installment of horse races in Montrose for the year. Sunday’s races were great – Not too hot, not windy, exciting action, and more importantly, no one got hurt. The turnout for Sunday wasn’t as impressive as it has been, but I think everyone that was there was having a great time.  I’m already itching for June and the next round of Black Canyon Horse Racing Association races! (There is also rumor of possibly pairing the races up with some other infield events next year for some added excitement…)

Here are Sunday’s highlights!



Here are a few bonus shots from race 3, by special request –

XGames Aspen 2013 – Part 1 of 2

What a weekend it was!

Saturday and Sunday I got to hang out at the Aspen Winter XGames with my husband. I spent all day taking pictures and it was an amazing time. Saturday was filled with Snowmobile Speed & Style and Snowboard SlopeStyle. Sunday was all about SnoCross and ski SlopeStyle. (We cut out before the night events on both days). Here are the highlights from Saturday’s events.

Be prepared for part 2 tomorrow – Sunday’s fun!

Dirt Bike Jumping – 2006

There has been talk lately from some of the local dirt bikers about getting out the ramps and setting up another jump session. I’m really excited about getting to shoot some real dirt bike action again.

All this talk has gotten me thinking about the last jump event that we did back in 2006. I shot it with my Minolta Maxxis3 35mm camera. I realized tonight that I had neglected to post those pictures on here. So I’m correcting that.

Enjoy!

USA Pro Cycling Challenge – Stage 2

Today Montrose, Colorado was the proud host to the start of Stage 2 of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. It was a gorgeous day and the crowds were all in the race spirit. I got a chance to wander around the event grounds prior to the start of the race. The team rigs and cars were all fairly impressive and there was food and water being loaded up by the case.

I headed over to my first race-shooting location well before they started any road closures. I got to hang out with a lovely group of spectators and fellow photographers while we were waiting for the parade lap to begin. It was a lot of fun and I even met another local photographer that I might get a chance to go out and shoot some nature photos with sometime.


I did manage to make it out to the main highway before the race blew through, so I got more race pictures anyhow, just not exactly the ones I was going for. Unfortunately I didn’t get all my facts as straight as I should have and I missed my chance to get out to my planned second location. (My plan B should have been my plan A) Next time I’ll be all the wiser and plan it so that I’m absolutely at the spot that I want to be Before they start shutting down any roads. (And I’ll be shooting the race portion with a much higher f/Stop and much lower shutter speed so as not to have such frozen pictures, But that’s just the technical stuff)

You shoot, you learn.
