A gorgeous day for photographing cyclocross racing: blue sky with just the right amount of clouds, brightly colored foliage and of course lots of action. Not least of which could be found at New England’s first cyclocross flyover.
Held at the Bolton Fairgrounds in Lancaster, MA, hundreds of competitors showed up to race on the course that offered something for everybody: straight power sections, short inclines, tight twisty tuns among trees, a sand pit, mud, barriers and of course, the flyover.
The slide show above shows excerpts from the Juniors, Women, Cat 4, Cat 3 Masters (35/45+), Masters 55+ and Cat 1/2/3 heats. The only heat I didn’t get any photos of was the Cat 4 (35/45+) because I was IN that race and finished 17 in the 45+ and 36th overall.
