Exclamation I've gone and done it . . . . .

. . . . . signed up that is.

And this is my 1st post - hopefully not my last.

I've only retaken up photography (seriously) this year (2005) and so far I've taken about 60,000 photographs almost all Cycling. 40,000 of them where with an EOS300D, after 11 months the AF packed in and Jessops exchanged it for the EOS350D (much better). At the same time I purchased an EOS20D which I've found to be rather good. The EOS1DmkII is my goal for 2006 (pie in the sky)

Now you know me - almost

Hi and welcome to the forum

That was nice of jessops to swap out the 300d after that length of time

I'm a fan of the old push irons, I prefer the muddy ones though

I'm an UCI International Commissaire and have been involved as an Official for 25 (LONG) years.

Next March I'm off to Aussieland for the Commonwealth Games (my 3rd) as a Commissaire.

I've noticed this Officiating thing has got in the way of my Photography ie 25 years. I started Racing when I was 9 and was hit by a drunk driver when I was 19 which ended my Racing Career. Back then I had a Pentax MX which I eventually sold when I didn't have any time to use it. Now I'm taking up my hobby again, which I now regret stopping (all those years ago.)

I enjoy every single photo I take, good or bad, as each one teaches me to do better next time

Welcome!

Nice avatar. I was a cyclist back in Ray Booty's (The Boot) time.- first guy to break 4hrs for the 100 mile time trial. I was only a kid but I used to assist marshalling etc. The guy was just awesome!

Enjoy the forum.

TTing is not my scene, but yes I've heard of The Boot.

I'm ashamed to say that it's been a few months since I went out on my bike too......, well 6 of them tbh.

When I changed my car to one with a soft top, it sort of stopped me transporting the bike to where I wanted to ride.

I raced XC mountain bikes for a few years, at the moment my custom built intense tracer lives in my office room

Awesome - cycling is getting as big as photography here.
My shameful admission is that I have a Joe Waugh 753 Gold Medal (Dura-Ace), a Litespeed Ocoee (XTR), a Gary Fisher Prometheus (old XTR) and a Scott ally winter road bike (mix of 105 and other shimano bits) sitting neglected in the garage.
My New Year's resolution will be to replace the cranks on the Litespeed and get it muddy next year.

Oh, welcome by the way.
