Tour de Nez: Fast!

Photos from the first men’s race.  I have to note that while they called this the “men’s” race, I saw a number of women competing as well.  There were several “men’s” races, not any “women’s” races, so I think they just bunched them all together and awarded trophies accordingly?  I dunno.

Needless to say, it was a great opportunity to practice panning!

How is it possible that they can chat while going so fast?

Cheering the riders on!

I’m slowly filling the gallery, so if you’d like to see more and/or follow my progress, here is the link.


  1. Good stuff.
    Having tried to take some shot of an ‘A-B’ race once, I can appreciate the skill at getting these – though on a circuit race at least they keep coming past.
    A couple of weeks back we were following the Tour de France on the television – the endurance of some of these guys (and gals) is just amazing.


  2. Great shots, Carissa! You’ve captured the feeling of motion and the sharpness of focus on the rider. Wow. I wonder what the two cyclists were talking about?


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
