Giro di Burnaby 2007 Next Week
Next week, Criterium bike racers will convene in North Burnaby to participate in Giro di Burnaby. I was at last year's event, and it was pretty amazing seeing the speedy racers whiz by. I took some video using my cameraphone (each hosted by Amazon S3, so there are BitTorrent links as well, not that it matters really), as well as a few photos posted to Flickr. Looks like Terry Power posted some photos as well. I added the event listing to the Urban Vancouver events calendar, so it will show up in the upcoming events listing when the time comes closer. This year, I have a much better camera (a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi in addition to the Nokia N70 I took photos and video with last year), so this will be my chance to take some higher quality photos while figuring out how to capture fast-moving objects.
