The 2015 Land Run 100 could become on of those legendary rides that are talked about for years. Tough conditions make for great rides.
The photo on the right is of Peter Sullivan who came from California solely to ride the LR100. He was the first rider to reach the 19-20 mile mark where I was taking photos. He had a lead approaching six minutes over the next riders. I though he was smoking it, just a monster ride in really crummy conditions
Right after I took this photo…BAM… he blew out his rear derailleur. Like a lot of riders, who never even made it to the 20-mile mark, his Land Run ended early in the mud, muck and mire.
He was also the first of nine riders who, over the course of the morning, had rear derailleurs blew out within about 100 feet of me. I don’t think it was my fault, but maybe I’m bad luck.
Photos from the Land Run 100 were taken in two locations. The first was about 19-20 miles out on the course. Now when I set up it seemed like a good location, I had no idea of the mayhem that was going to happen earlier on the course. At least the survivors of the earlier chaos were riding when they reached my position.
I hope the photos are a semi-accurate record of the conditions you were riding through.
The second group of photos was taken at around mile 80-85. And, I think, shows another side to the gravel…the long open stretches of road where one can comfortably cruise along.
We offer high quality affordable prints with the Land Run logo (as sample of which is shown to the right) and a plain "standard" print, Print sizes range from 5x7 prints to near-poster sized 16x24 inch and 24x30 inch enlargements.
We also have digital images files that are available for download within just couple of hours or so of an order being placed. These files are available in two sizes. The medium-sized file is ideal for web use; say for a Facebook page, for storing on a smart phone, a tablet, or such things, and for emailing to friends, family and or perhaps to include a thank you message to supporters. The medium digital file also makes a great "screen saver" particularly the horizontal images. It also is a cost-affordable way to be able to make multiple prints up to about 5x7 inches.
The large file is essentially a master file of the image and will give you the highest quality image possible. If you want several 8x10 or larger prints, this is the file to use.
Both digital files and prints can be adjusted by cropping to your liking during the check out process.
