I had the job to shoot the Fort Ord Dirty Gears Mountain Bike Race on July 17, 2010. I found a location where the competitors had to work their way down a fairly technical downhill section with some good rocks and ruts. The sun was up high and created a bit of a challenge with the deep shadows. I used center weighted metering for the exposures during the race and for most of the exposures I went +1/3 to try and make sure I had good light on the faces of the competitors. The hope in this situation is to not totally blow out the highlights!
