Berner Rundfahrt 2016

The Berner Rundfahrt is a UCI 1.2 race just next to my house door. Of course, I wanted to shoot this. Besides the men’s pro race there were other events, a national women’s race, a U17 race, an amateur race and, the hobby races. I had to skip the hobby races for personal reasons, and just covered the pros and amateurs.

One lap of the course is 34km long. The toughest part is climbing the Frienisberg, a 12 percent ramp. Nothing for sprinters and heavy rouleurs.

I selected several shooting positions starting a few meters behind my house and ending at the finish line. Enjoy the gallery.
