This body of work comes from a decidedly more playful place within the realm of cyclocross, a form of all-terrain bike racing. These races are usually held in parks or fields where objects in nature often become obstacles to avoid. In this form of racing, the spectators inevitably play a large role. Heckling, ringing cowbells, showing up in costume and offering alcohol to racers are only some of the debaucherous activities involved. From an outside perspective, it may seem odd to encounter a person in a gorilla suit ringing a cowbell or someone racing in a womens bathing suit in 40 degree weather, but in cyclocross it is just par for the course. I wanted to explore these events, some out of the context of the sport; pairing the beauty of nature and the awe I have come to associate with it, with the irreverent antics of the initiated.
