Northstar-at-Tahoe Downhill Mountain Bike Race Photos / 29 July, 2007

I shot photos at the Northstar-at-Tahoe Downhill Mountain Bike Race on Sunday, 29 July, 2007. Normally I shoot video but the old still photography bug bit me. I grabbed the Canon S3 1S camera and started hiking up the mountain. So, here's a slide show to music.

John took first place in his division at the Northstar-at-Tahoe Mountain bike downhill race on Sunday, 1 July, 2007. The course was challenging to say the least. The trail was strewn with rocks and boulders to dodge, jump, or whatever means gets you through. There were numerous crashes resulting in injuries, none major. Despite John's body armor, he took a good hit on the elbow. All riders in his race crashed at least once.
