Tour of Utah – Stage 2 – Thanksgiving Point to Mt. Nebo

Cycling isn’t exactly something I usually pay attention to, or shoot for that matter.  However, this summer has been one of shooting photos of things, sports, events that are new to me, or at least that I don’t usually cover professionally.  I headed up to the Mt. Nebo Summit today to shoot the second stage of the Tour of Utah cycling race.  Today’s stage was a pretty brutal climb of over 4,500 feet from Thanksgiving Point to Mt. Nebo Summit.  As I usually light 75% of my ski photos, I figure why not give it a go with this?  The clouds in the background were pretty dark and gloomy looking so this pretty well setup perfect for how I usually shoot cloudy day ski shots.

Stage 3 is tomorrow at Miller Motorsports Park where the race will be a time trials event on the full road-course out at MMP.  I haven’t seen anything besides a race car or motorcycle out there so I’m stoked to see how it goes out there!
