Edinburgh Nocturne Cycle Race 2009

May 31, 2009

Today I had the great pleasure of watching the Edinburgh Nocturne Cycle Race. Before I got into photography my life was all about cycling. In my final year of cycling, which would have been 2003 (scary to think it’s 7 years ago!) I did roughly 12000 miles but then I had a huge accident in which I smashed some teeth, lost of a lot of blood and ended up with metal screws in my face (which are still here) and facial scarring. Prior to this I had a few other accidents, some really bad, some not so bad, some funny (for example falling off mountain bikes while riding with friends) but when I smashed my face up I decided enough is enough.

Anyway, I got to watch the awesome David Millar race. There were some really good riders in the race but Millar absolutely tore everyone apart, it was an awesome display of power and speed. It made me laugh that the commentators suggested some of the riders might be tired but Millar had just ridden the Giro d’Italia which will be a damn site more tiring than a domestic race.

I really can’t wait for the race to come back again this year. I’ll be taking a lot more photos again.

Lots of people going out with it being a weekend night. I thought there was going to be a fight when one drunken idiot jumped over a barrier and kicked someone’s girlfriend on the way over the barrier but idiots will be idiots.
