Middle Cross MCX09 at Manhattan Middle School

_DSC9540The 2009 Middle Cross event had a massive turnout. Great to see such a wide range of kids racing and learning cyclocross. There were guys and girls ranging from those on cyclocross teams in their team kits, to a guy on a bmx bike who’d lost a shoe somewhere on the course.

I was in touch with two of the organizers, Catherine Powers and Mike Eubank, beforehand and mentioned that I wanted to help out by offering up my photography for free. I told them I would shoot all the kids and post their images online here where they or their parents could download to the files completely free.

From a photography perspective, I wanted to come and shoot the event with the goal of getting one, if not a couple, shots of each participant.  This way, everyone has a photo of themselves if they want!  Below is a sample gallery of some of the shots…
