Hi All!
Please post your photos and videos (or links to them) in this thread so everyone can enjoy!

**Please keep the posts to only photos and or links to photos/videos.  This thread will stay online for people to access these images for the next year so we should keep this thread to the point.  I will occasionally moderate this thread and remove posts that don't have content in them or get off topic. Please dont' take offense to this, just trying to make it more manageable for people to find images/video.
 

Thanks!
Ben

We have just started uploading and cataloging our photos from the day.  We were the guys out on the trail blinding everyone with the flash and rockin' the hawk.  All images are now online and you should be able to search for photos of racers by the race numbers (instructions will be posted at the top of the page in the gallery below).

All I have for now is a teaser image.


How to Find Images:

All images on our site have been tagged with keywords to let you find photos quickly.  First try searching for the racer's number and if no results are found try using a search string which includes the bike color, make, model, team/organization, or race category.  Category can be in the format of "cat 1", "cat 2", "cat 3", "novice", "sport", "expert".  If your bike was bare/metallic use the color keyword "silver".  All Comp. riders are tagged with the "Cat 1" or "expert" keyword.  If that doesn't work, try widening your search. Example: "unknown novice" finds all unknown Cat 3/novice photos.  Be sure to click on the Images tab in the search page as it sometimes defaults to searching for Galleries.

Here is a link to the search page with an example search query: http://www.hansonphotodesign.com/?q=sport+unknown+trek+black

Thanks!

Here's a complete video of lap 1 in the sport class courtesy of Northwest Mountain Bike. It goes for 33 minutes and then a link to part 2 pops up near the end for the rest of lap 1. I finished 51st overall and 22nd in my age group 30-39 in 1:18:32 to give you an idea of my pace in the video.

This was unfortunate but caught on tape. The grass seemed to be hiding something. Rock or rut?  Found a perfect song for it.

More pics from the CAT 3 race.  I uploaded this group to photobucket. Hope they work. Meanwhile, I'll work on getting the first batch on PB as well.

Here's 33 minutes of lap 1 in the sport class. I tried to record 1 full lap but my Contour HD decided to stop recording early. Maybe I hit a really big bump?

3:20 onward, the person in front of you has streamers on the ends of the handlebars?  lol

awesome stuff folks.   
FYI, Channel 7 parked up top around 11AM and should have captured some footage of the Start Finish area - not sure what may have aired or when - but keep an eye out and post it if you find it.
