Posts Tagged ‘George Hincapie’

Also present at this weekend’s National Cycling Championships were a few of my favorite bloggers:

Below, Greenville’s very own James T:

And Andy Woolard at the Hincapie Sportswear party and fashion show (left of frame just a few feet behind George, probably posting to Twitter):

I’ll even throw in H3O – even though they aren’t bloggers. They are, however, a sports marketing/branding firm, so I guess they’re relevant here. AND they were EVERYWHERE filming my every move!!! (Or maybe I just got in their way a lot. Whatever floats my boat.):

And last but not least: BikeHugger‘s crew… which I didn’t shoot photos of because by the time I ran into them, a) the Canon was safely retired for the evening and b) my camera hand was busy holding a chilled glass of delicious yet suspiciously tangy… lemonade. Very cool group of folks. 🙂

Sorry about the delay in posting the Road Race shots, but the Hincapie party/fashion show ran late into the evening Sunday, and I went on an epic 5 hour country ride Monday. Ergo: Taking my sweet old time with the images. Sorry about that.

The bad: Hometown favorites George Hincapie and Craig Lewis didn’t win.

The good: Tyler Hamilton (who’s a VERY nice guy) made a hell of a comeback at 37 years old to win the National Champion jersey by a hair. Pretty impressive given the immensely talented field of world class professionals and the fact that many pros are retired by the time they’re 37.

Pretty exciting race, especially the last few laps. It’s always a blast to go back to my roots once or twice a year and put on my photographer hat at events like this.

And as a bonus, the word is that the National Championships will come back to Greenville for another year!!! Very cool.

Go check out the slide show here.

I promise I’ll be back to posting marketing/branding stuff before you know it. (I just have to get the national championships out of my system first.) It’s always exciting to be part of something this big.
