John Breazeal posing for the after race photo. He had to settle for an 8th place finish in the Sport class 18-26 due to his "Monster T" fork suffering a catastrophic failure half way through the course.

The Finish Line / Northstar-at-Tahoe 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.

Here's a slide show to music:

This is a frame from the helmet cam video. John's mini-Whistler has dozens of trails and stunts for technical riding or high speed runs that twist and turn through the trees.

John is building his mini-Whistler in the forest. The trails and stunts now cover several acres around the house. Many of the local riders come to test out the latest and greatest stunts and trails. It has turned out to be a great training area for downhill racers.
