Fame but no fortune: Pictures in the Free Press

I posted some pictures of a small local cyclocross race here and emailed the link to four people, one of whom must have forwarded the link to the owner/operator of the Catamount Family Center, where the race was held. He in turn was contacted by a reporter for the Burlington Free Press who was doing a story on this obscure sport and needed some photographs as illustrations. One thing led to another... and so my pictures were prominent in today's paper.

I know this is very trivial in light of the headlines on section "A" which were all about murder, wars and killing but still it was a nice thing and did give me a small sense of accomplishment & vindication. The story that accompanied the photos can be found here, its got some inaccuracies but any coverage of bike racing in the mainstream press is probably a good thing.
