I recently took in the downtown Chico Criterium. The last cycling event I attended was this same set of races one year ago. As in 2012 I concentrated on panning with the action. Last year I didn’t have much success panning at 1/80 or 1/100 and ended up shooting primarily in the range of 1/125 - 1/250. I used the same range of shutter speeds this time. A basic goal was to retain spoke motion by not going too high in shutter speed. Both men’s and women’s races were run, and I spent more than 6 hours at the event.

Camera used was D700 + 70-300 VR. Shutter speed priority was employed at all times as was VR.

Comments are welcome.
