Bicycle racers crisscross North Carolina from September to January racing bikes in a sport known as Cyclo-Cross. Originating in France in the early 1900s, racers compete on a short course, with multiple laps through parks, fields, woods, mud, rain and snow.
The class used Nikon and Canon dSLR cameras, Sony mirrorless cameras, Canon cinema cameras, GoPro point of view cameras, a drone and even an iPhone to capture the action.
Congrats to Allison Lee Isley, 2016 Photojournalism graduate, now a staff photographer at the Winston-Salem Journal, won the North Carolina Press Association’s Hugh Morton Photographer of the Year Award and the John H. White “Keep in Flight” Award at the Eddie Adams Workshop. Two extremely prestigious awards in a couple of months!
