These images were made with a Nikon Coolpix 990 digital camera. They are mostly manual focus, ISO 400, 2.0 digital telephoto, normal quality.
I used Adobe Photoshop on a Macintosh iBook to crop and sharpen the images.
The women's race started about 6:00 pm, so I had adequate light for this event.
The men's race started later, and toward the end of the event the light was insufficient. I used the built-in flash on a few of the later images. Many of the later images have had the brightness and contrast bumped up by about 20%.
I only bought this splendid camera two days previously, and have not, by any means, mastered its intracacies yet.
If anybody would care to identify the riders in these photos, I might add that info to these pages. Send me an e-mail at americancupat-symbol sheldonbrown.com (Don't use that address for general correspondence, please.) Make sure to supply the speficic URLs you're referring to.
