High Desert Omnium Road Race In Bend, Oregon

July 18th, 2009

Being an avid athlete of a few sports, one of my passions is cycling.  If I can train and not go flying off the back of the peloton, I even love to race. Rather than racing this day, I had the opportunity to ride on the back of a motorcycle bike to shoot the action. I haven’t been on a moto really since my motocross days and I’ve only ridden a street bike once in my life.  Sitting backwards on this moto while Bob hit 95mph was quite thrilling and when we slowed down (at some point), the photography was really rewarding as we were able to get up super close to watch the action without being a problem for the riders. Thank’s Bob for keeping me and my equipment safe!  Enjoy the highlights and check the gallery for more!
