Photo Shoot: 2014 HRCA Backcountry Burner Cross Country Race

This was the grand finale of the Highlands Ranch Race Series mountain bike events. A slightly longer cross country point-to-point course vs. the smaller weeknight circuit courses. The stakes were high for many of the leaders as the series points were very tight in several of the categories.

I shot the start of each category then sprinted across the park to my car to drive to the next location a few miles away and get in position before the racers arrived. During the sprint my brand-new Leadville 100 finisher jacket worked its way free from the bungee straps on my pack and fell silently to the grass without my knowledge. Thankfully, a passer-by shouted at me and I finally heard him and realized why some stranger was yelling at me when I was a man on a mission. Thanks, stranger!!
