Trinona Triatholon 2011

This last wknd I drove to the beautiful, bluff-country of Winona, Minnesota to photograph the 3rd running of the Trinona.  I was hired to shoot the race, billed as the "biggest little race".  The most notable feature is a monster climb on the bicycle leg and I have to give major props to all the racers who gutted it out to roll over the top of that hill.  It made me glad to be on a motorcycle!

My moto was actually a 1972 Moto Guzzi 850 and I was in the sidecar!  Awesome!  That was a first for me, and it actually worked out better than riding two-up on a normal bike.  I could really hang out of the sidecare and get some low perspectives. Thanks to my driver, Mark for whipping me around the course all morning.

I've got thousands of images to weed through, but I will be posting more as the week progresses.  Once again, well done, racers.  It was super fun to be there doucmenting your struggle.
