Nature Valley Bike Races: Stillwater, MN (Sports Photography)

It was that time of year again, where hundreds of bikers participate in a four day race: Nature Valley Bike Races. They are exhilarating to watch. Two years again, I went and saw the race in Menomonie, WI. Last year I saw them in St. Paul, MN and this year, we watched in Stillwater, MN. Stillwater is where the bikers ride the hills. The smell of burning rubber/brakes were unbelievable as the riders came flying down the big hills. We made it about halfway around the race course before it started down pouring. We called it quits and retreated to the car before our cameras were soaked. Here are a few pictures, and though they each may have 1000 words behind them, I encourage everyone to go see them for yourself next year. Whether you are into bikes or not, it is inspirational and really cool to watch. Enjoy!
