My favourite thing to do is take podium/head shots, and maybe even some action shots, then make them black and white for a more emotional effect. Here are a few I did from the 2019 Thor Mini O’s at Gatorback Cycle Park near Gainesville,

2019 Mini O’s | The Canadians | Monday By Billy Rainford The 2019 Thor Mini O’s got underway today, a day earlier than tradition. Instead of practicing on Monday, the races actually started today because they held practice on Sunday this time.

On Wednesday they headed to ride at Cahuilla Creek.
