2011 has wrapped itself around me before I even saw it coming. I know time is technically pretty much the same as always, but wow, 2010 where did you go?

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.

Thanks to Sarah for having me stay at her beach house.

Next for 2011 is a trip to Adelaide to visit the Barossa Valley wine region – very exciting!!!
