When I’m not out taking pictures I spend a lot of time on my bike traveling the roads of Mid-Missouri. Cycling has always been one of my favorite hobbies for as long as I can remember. I headed down to Jefferson City to photograph the Missouri State Championship Criterium as the racers made their way through downtown Jefferson City and around the Missouri State Capital grounds. Noting beats watching a good bike race.
