This afternoon's Olympic Cycling Time Trials
Aug 1, 2012

After my shots from Saturday’s cycling road race, here are 4 from this afternoon’s men’s Time Trial:- firstly Wiggins and Froome of GB who took the Gold and Bronze medals respectively. Then we have Beppu of Japan, who seems to be finding it hard going, and finally Vinokurov of Kazakhstan, winner of the Road Race, who sports a really snazzy outfit.
The shots are not as good as those I did of the Road Race:

Today’s road speeds were very high and I was unable to find a location that offered good angles. I also felt that continuous AF and the Sony 70-300mm G lens were not quite able to keep up with the approach speed of the riders. As discussed currently in another thread, noise was a problem. Maybe I should have accepted a slower shutter speed in order to reduce the ISO values. My shots of the women’s trial were even worse. Light was poor and noise therefore intrusive.
