Welcome to my Photographs of the 2009 TD Bank Philadelphia International Cycling Championship. For all twenty five of it's races over the last twenty five years, I've gone to and photographed this great race. A last minute save from Gov. Ed Rendell ensured this highwater mark in Philly sports history. As in past years, it was hot and sunny which drew a large and boisterous crowd.
All photographs were taken with a Canon 5D using the 17-40, 100 Macro, 200 f2.8, 300 f4, and a Tamron 28-75. Many have flash fill where I used a Quantum T2. I carry everything around the course in my daughter's Schwinn Trailer. You can see previous years photos at www.equusbicycle.com/bikeracing
