2009 World Bicycle Messenger Championships

I’ll be back with the next set of pictures from the Yokohama Birthday Bash and of course the next installment of the Great 2008 Cross Japan Autumn Roadtrip soon, but first I just wanted to post a few pictures from the 2009 World Bicycle Messenger Championships held in Odaiba, Tokyo last week.

I had wanted to catch the track stand and skid competitions in particular, but I got there pretty late last Wednesday, so all I managed to see was the tail end of one of the sprint competitions.

Unfortunately, all I had with me was my wide-angle 10-22mm and 50mm prime, so I didn’t have much focal length to work with to catch decent closeups of the riders (I know, excuses excuses) from my position on the side of the track where I was standing. But it was still fun to see them go at it and they were definitely a colourful and fun group to photograph.

    First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my
    ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thank you!
