154 photos of the Boulder Fall 2007 Cyclocross Series / Louisville 11/24 "The Louisville Bowl"
Cyclocross photos (154 pictures) taken on 11/24/2007 in Louisville Colorado. These races were part of Fall, 2007, Boulder Cyclocross racing series. The temperature was about 40 degrees Fahrenheit (4 Celsius) all day. There had been a light snow fall the day before. Unfortunately, the meager snow melt failed to produce the truly deep, muddy conditions that Cyclocross fans adore. As you will see, the course was still challenging, repeatedly climbing up and down the steep bowl-like sides of a wide and very deep "flood park," which was built to catch and store flash floods. Though most of theses photos are shown here in chronological order, I have take the liberty of occasionally juxtaposing shots of riders from different heats for narrative purposes. As might be expected in a bike race held in Colorado, the skill level of the riders ranged from "weekend warriors" to to world champion class competitors. To get a spectator-like experience of the full day of this competition, I recommend these photos be viewed in "slide show" mode -- click above right.Read More
