The BIG Barossa

A little over a week ago, we did something really big. In 4 days we poured ourselves into the Barossa Valley, I think it’s safe to say we got drunk on all things Barossa.

Bay Series Cycling 2011

One of the first events in the 2011 calendar was the Jacyo Bay Series Criterium event. In short, it’s a big, fast, superbly colourful bike race that plays out across 4 days at 4 different bayside locations (think tour de France by the sea, on a smaller scale). I went along in support of my partner Andrew who was competing for Team John West, yes, the tuna guy. Of course, my camera came along too. It was 4 jam packed days of sunburn, tuna, catching up with friends, beach time and taking photographs. It was fantastic to see there were stacks of photographers out and about, each of us trying to catch a shot of the rainbow of riders whizzing by. Hopefully 2011 won’t whiz by quite so fast. Here are some of my favorite shots from the 4 days.
