I have been waiting for the Fujifilm EF-X500 flash to show up at my door for a long time. It arrived on time before the 2017 BC Superweek kicked off in July. Featuring 8 pro races over the course of 10 days, BC Superweek has fast become one of the most prestigious pro-cycling events in North America!
The criterium-style race features a mass start and an estimated 1000-metre circuit that cyclists navigate for an expected 45-55 laps. More than 200 men’s and women’s cyclists will pass by every minute, making the races a thrilling experience.
The corner shots is one of my favorite and also is dangerous for photographers and cyclists. Having the advantage as a photojournalist, I can shoot all angles inside the fence. When I come to the corner location, I have to pay extremely attention as the cyclists are passing by within arm length at 40-60km speed.
