    No matter how many times it is on BF (4x now), still looks drop dead gorgeous every time I look at it, especially when I go out for a ride /sigh...

    Christmas definitely came early for me this year

    (Yes I am aware the tires are on backwards. Fixed it after the photo shoot)

    That was a good time. I think I took some photos of similar quality that day.

    Actually, upon further review... your pic is awesome.

    So many great photos, it is hard to choose. Today Lanceyoungstrong down in the drops is really speaking to me. 9 years old and eyes fixed fiercely on the road ahead.

    Two of my favorites from the year.

    The first day I felt like I was getting decent action shots with my camera and my first successful day of photographing cycling.
    Copperopolis Road Race


    I love the expressions. Lance looks tired, Levi looks pissed, and Ben looks calm (but he said he wasn't, he hides it well).

    probably my favorite pro moment this year - Heinrich Haussler's ride on stage 13 of the TdF was not only epic (solo win - in the mountains - in the rain - with a 5+ minute lead at the end) , but probably the most exciting thing I saw during the tour. No dweeby arrogant Spaniard or old guy from Texas can take that away :

    I think that was probably my favorite moment of the entire tour despite feeling terribly disappointed about Levi not starting that morning. Had Haussler not showed so much emotion, I probably wouldn't have been so excited for him.

    I was fortunate enough to be one of the Traveling Course Marshalls for the Tour of California. It was one of the most coveted positions ... but then why am I relegated to standing out in the rain like this?

    I'm in it to finish it.

    +1 This is a great photo.

    My meager contribution is a shot I took during the final lap or two at the Nevada City Classic:

    I built a new bike this year. It's the first bike I've ordered ala carte, then assembled on my own. I'm super happy with the bike, and rode it the whole summer:

    One of the first rides I had on it, out at Salmon Falls trail:



    I don't know what it is about the Jabber, but I'm trying stuff on it that I've never done on my full suspension bike:



    In May, I did the Annadel State Park ride with the guys from MTBR in their annual "May By The Bay" rides. Someone got this of me:



    In June, I rode the South Yuba River trail with a fast group of guys. I ended up riding with these guys a few more times during summer:





    This one is easily my favorite. Riding the Hole In The Ground trail, my favorite trail:



    Probably one of the most fun trips we took this summer. This one is cycling related - you can see my Jabberwocky on the roof of the orange monster I rode the first five miles of the Rubicon, to Buck Island where we camped, and rode passenger in the FJ on the way home:



    2009 is up there with the best years of my life. I did ton of riding and improved my skills and fitness like crazy, took three trips I never thought I'd take and tried a bunch of new things. Here's to 2010 - I already know it's going to be a wild ride.
