Criterium Collection

Sunday marked my first ever foray into the world of competitive road bicycle racing. Having raced mountain bikes back in my youth, I was familiar with the strategies of cycling in close quarters… but a criterium race is something different altogether. It’s almost like the roller derby of bicycle racing.

Here’s a collection of images from the men’s pro race at the Boston Mayor’s Cup race, which capped a weekend of all-around cycling free-love and good times in the city.

Tiger Beat

Falling behind would be an understatement for the amount of catching up I have to do on this blog. I had my first day off in 6 weeks, if that’s any indication of what kind of workload I’ve had.

But to jump back on top of my updates, here’s an update from the Deutsche Bank Championship, held over Labor Day weekend at TPC Boston, down in Norton, Mass., featuring none other than the (in)famous Tiger Woods.
