What Can Brown Do For You?

Bike Race (watching, not racing)

I went with a couple people to the Rochester Criterium bike race last night. It was a professional bike race held in the twilight (8:30 - 10:30pm). I was actually pretty impressed. It was a 0.95 mile loop, so they ended up passing us 60 or so times, so I was able to get a lot of shots from several vantage points. Sadly, there wasn't enough light to get a lot of really good shots, but I got a bunch I liked. Keep in mind that these were taken with a wide angle lens, so the ones that look like I was close, well, I was :-)

Some of my favorites:
Racers coming around the corner at Exchange St onto Broad St, with the Blue Cross Arena in the background:

Racing down Court St, with the library in the near background. It was on this street where they'd hit 45mph:

Zoom, zoom down Court St:

Me, almost getting clobbered:
