2013 NJ Highlands Fondo

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

My first coverage of a Fondo, really I have no experience with road racing. Whole different world from mountain bike racing photography.  I learned a LOT, good experience and nice seeing some familiar mountain biking face out there!

2013 Bearscat 50

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

Hot one! I’d like to put someone on the cover who actually finished, who actually finished? Wait does anyone actually read this blog? @gtluke if you actually read this. Pretty sure I saw the entire field in the parking lot staring at broken bike parts and crush souls.

Rain, bummer. The soaking wet conditions killed my camera. I tried my best, but I got all of Cat 2 and some of Cat 1 and I just couldn’t get it operational for Cat 3, SORRY BEGINNERS! Hopefully it works again after it dries out.

2012 Mooch Madness at Allamuchy

Sunday, August 26th, 2012

MTBNJ pulled off another excellent race at Allamuchy. Great weather, great race, great time. It was paired with the Cranks Around the Campfire weekend, where I stayed and had a ton of fun riding around Allamuchy. Hope everyone had as good of a time as I did. As a bonus to the campers that weekend, I put together an album of free pictures for the campers. If I missed you, contact me at gtluke@gmail.com if you were a camper and give me your picture number (DSC_XXXX) and I’ll set you up. So glad to have this great venue and great people to share it with. Can’t wait till next year!

2012 Darkhorse 40

10th Annual! Rain held off till the bitter end, worked out awesome. Hot day though.

All the pics:

Green Nimble Nine with white Formula Oro brakes. Looks familiar! I have white rims on mine though. A few years ago my “through the water” picture of Seth on his old bike made it as the banner of www.gtluke.com,  just because it looked cool, especially with the orange rims. And then not even knowing who Seth was, we both pre ordered green Nimble Nine’s. Finally got to say hi this year in person, he’s from Maine.
