It was another weekend of bicycle racing, this time in Aldergrove, BC. The day was a mixed bag of brilliant sunshine and threatening clouds. The winds were strong along 0 Avenue, next to the US border and even forced riders into echelons.

Another day photographing the Escape Velocity Spring Series, this time in Ft. Langley. The infamous Snake climb was on tap today and was the focal point of my coverage. This rider is looking at the climb just ahead as he rounds the switchback.

Escape Velocity Spring Series began on Saturday, typically the start of the road racing season in the Lower Mainland. A three-person breakaway for a large portion of the Elite Men’s race highlighted the action.

This was the penultimate night for racing on the UBC course for 2016. Great evening light, warm temperatures and good racing!
As usual, all these images were shot with a Fuji X-T1, XF50-140 f2.8, XF10-24 f4 and XF55-200 f3.5-4.8 lenses. Fill flash provided by a Canon 580 EX2. (click on any image below to start slideshow)
It was Tuesday night racing at the Glenlyon course in Burnaby this week. Great conditions for racing…or taking photographs. The images below were all shot with the Fuji X-T1 and the XF50-140 f2.8 or the XF10-24 f4 lens. Camera was set on jpeg using my new favourite film simulation, Classic Chrome.

FUJI X-T1 | XF50-140 f2.8
I usually shoot in the RAW format but decided to shoot jpegs with the Monochrome+Green filter simulation on the Fuji X-T1 for the races on Tuesday. The jpegs from the Fuji cameras are outstanding! I did some minor adjustments and cropping in Lightroom and applied a very subtle split-toning to each image. The 50-140 zoom is a very versatile lens for photographing bike racing. Extremely fast and sharp and just the right focal lengths so that one can shoot everything with just one lens. (click on any image to begin slideshow)
