Redlands Bicycle Classic

Earlier this month I went down to Redlands, California, to watch the Redlands Bicycle Classic. The race took place in the afternoon, in laps through downtown Redlands, and man was it ever hot. The weather app said it was 95°, but it had to have been hotter out on the street.

I believe that this was Stage 4 of a 5 stage race.

This was my first time at one and I really enjoyed it. I was amazed at how close together they were in the peloton (peloton= "the main group or pack of riders" ) and how fast they were moving. There was one pileup of several riders, but fortunately no one was seriously injured.

This was my first time trying to shoot a sports event. I need to work on some different shutter speeds, and angles.

I think this is called Cooperative Drafting, or a Paceline, or both...

I wish that I could have ended this with some cool image of a massive sprint, with the leader doing a bike throw across the finish line, but I had to go sit down and drink a bunch of water. Like I said, it was hot out there, and I managed to give myself a mild case of heat stroke...
