2013 Chafe 150

This last weekend I covered the 2013 Chafe 150 for the third year in a row.  This annual race starts in Sandpoint, Idaho and follows a route through Bonners Ferry, then over to Troy, Montana and then back to Sandpoint through Clark Fork and Hope.  It offers both a 150 mile race from Sandpoint and an 80 mile race starting in Troy and both races end in Sandpoint.

In previous years the race has been in early June when the weather can be unpredictable, my first year it was hot and beautiful then last year it was pouring down rain for almost the entire course.  This year the event has been moved to July when the weather is much most consistent, it was definitely a hot one but that sure beats the constant rain we had last year.

Through out the course we found locations to set up at least one and often two different cameras to capture video.  Usually we would have one camera set up to get a wide angle view and another set up with a long zoom lens.  Then of course I took almost 5,000 still images of the event which I culled down to just over 600 for the final gallery.  You can visit the final gallery here to view all of the published photos as well as order prints or digital copies.  Below you will find a handful of still images followed by a seven minute video featuring both still images and video footage.

Usually the only time I see sunrise is before going to bed after a long night of editing, not on the day of the Chafe though!
