Tour of Utah – Stage 3 – Miller Motorsports Park Time Trials

21Aug10

A racer about to overtake another through the Attitudes at Miller Motorsports Park during Stage 3 of the Tour of Utah

Another first for me, I’ve never shot photos of or seen a road bike time trials before.  I also have never seen this out on a road course for auto racing.  Yesterday was a really cool experience, I got to walk around the race track at Miller Motorsports Park.  It’s usually something you don’t get to do, the track is usually buzzing with race cars and motorcycles going 100+ miles an hour, the track is usually on lockdown.  As the most of the track was shut down for the general public due to the use of the perimeter road I decided to go out to help my friend Re Wikstrom run strobes while she was covering the event.  Since she didn’t really need them till the end of the race when the light got low, I got to shoot quite a bit.  It’s quite the different scene at the Tour of Utah Time Trial with such different gear, the crazy helmets, wheels, etc.  It’s very different visually and I’m glad I went.
