We are into our second race of the Healthy and Happy Thursday Night FBF Series. We were treated with a very wonderful weather and very bright condition. My job today was a secondary race photographer and the main camera man for the finishing shots at the line. We have switched to a new camera capturing system that would allow us to capture the finish with more accurate and correct placing. Extensive tests have been done and it wasn't much of a surprise and to see how it worked today. It works well and efficient...few things can be improved.
The actual finishing stretch has been narrowed more than before. It didn't impact the safety of the riders at all. There was a tailwind at the finishing stretch and it certainly did increase the pace of the race...as well as the sprint.
