Omnium

Have you ever heard of an omnium? I hadn't until today. It's a bike race with multiple competitions, and the scores for each race are not cumulative; each race and score is independent of the others. Downtown Knoxville hosted an omnium this afternoon. These cyclists are racing down Union Avenue, and are just leaning into the turn onto Gay Street.

Great picture, looks like there were quite a few riders. I bet it was fun to watch and click away.

That's a great action shot! Would you join them next year?

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. It's been a while but I hope to visit your blog more regularly. A lot of things have happened in my so called life, which prevented me from being more active online. Enjoy the week ahead!

So what other competitions were involved besides the race? Looks like a nice day. MB

Sport photography is a tricky one, but again you have mastered this perfectly. I love the angle, the lean is fantastic.

Greetings from Cape Town! Ah, sneaky... omnium - now I've too learned another term. ;)
