Raid Rockingham

Raid Rockingham 2016

My second favorite event to shoot every year. Hard, gritty and local. The ride starts only a short way from my home in Newmarket and finishes at The Stone Church. I get to see a bunch of the local riders crushing it on the best gravel and tarmac in the area. 

This year gave us a nice little rain storm that started just before the first riders took off and held steady until just before I left for the day.

I made all of the wide shots with my Sony A7II. It was an experiment to see how it would perform for the type of sports photography that I often shoot. While it worked it wasn't perfect. I plan to write a review about my experience with the camera (someday). 

Raid Rockingham 2015!

I had a blast shooting another Raid Rockingham this year. Biggest turnout yet. Hundreds of riders enjoying the dirt roads, rail trails and amazing scenery that Rockingham county has to offer. Even a few fat bikes out there! http://lococycling.com/
