USA timed track national championships Aug 9-11

Photographed the USA timed track cycling national championships in the StubHub Velodrome, Carson, CA. It was a lot of fun, and many thanks to Bill Kellick from USA Cycling for the media credentials and allowing me to photograph from the "apron" of the track. I wanted to experiment and try out some different techniques, focusing on showing the dynamics and the speed of the track cyclists. Just shooting at high shutter speeds freezes the action, but doesn't show the movement. So I photographed a lot of times with longer shutter speeds and mixed panning with flash.
