Believe it or not this what I call fun. You wouldn’t know it by the classic “race face” but this is what some of us crazy cyclists call fun. Cyclocross is a little known cycling discipline that is typically held in cold and muddy conditions, kind of like steeplechase on your bike. Here a cyclist dismounts his bike and jumps over 18″ high barriers then back on the bike, all at full speed. Being able to get this close to the action proved to be good testing ground for the auto focus of my new camera.
