Photos from the North American Vasa

Michigan Cup: North American Vasa

Sun, Feb  12, 2012 - By Dave Dalquist

Hosed at Headwaters! I went to the same place as last year that's relatively early in the race, racers are still in packs, it's great terrain, the morning light is good, and I can get the camera positioning on the racers that I want. Not!!!

Despite all the weather issues, I neglected to check Vasa.org for course changes, and I stood there waiting for racers that never came (there was a food stop sign about 200 ft. away). A few phone calls later, and I found out only the 2nd lap of the 50K was coming through. Oh, well. So, I headed up to Timber Ridge and caught these just before the finish line. Better than nothing, and most importantly, the race was successful.

I have a lot more photos here. I am NOT done uploading - check back late on Monday for more photos.
