2011 Sea Otter Dual Slalom Photos

During my stay at Sea Otter something happened to my mentally and emotionally that I can’t explain.  It’s a bit more deep than I want to get into on this post but one of the after affects was wanting, no yearning, to take more bike racing photos.   Saturday afternoon before we packed up for the day, Neal and I hiked up the dual slalom hill to watch the final heats of the races.  While I had no experience of this type of racing, besides what I have seen in the magazines, it was thrilling.  It took a BMX track and pulled it downhill.   In fact it looked SUPER fun.   Everything I love, downhill, speed, berms and a short sprint!

Here are some of my favorite photos I took during the 20 minutes on the course. Feedback and criticism are encouraged!

      PS Sorry I peaced out after we landed in LA…. I sprinted through the airport and just barely made it on to my connecting flight after they had already giving the last call. I would have like to have at least said good-bye, so sorry about that! Maybe we can together with Dan and Neal and have an Southeastern Airborne reunion or something, who knows!

      Later,
      -Greg

    • Thanks Greg! It was great meeting you folks
