These are mostly the pro men and pro women. It was late in the afternoon, and I was pushing the limits of my camera, having to shoot at ISO 3200. Most of these were then pushed another 1.5-2 stops to obtain a more daytime appearance, but they they are grainy due to the limited light and the processing. Enjoy them for what they are, 'cuz the cold, wet, and sandy/muddy conditions caused many racers to bail that day, and I'm sure the bike component manufacturers got a lot of sales from ruined gear. One friend weighed his bike after the race - it had 5+ lbs. of dirt coating it.
