And I am honored to carry the torch through the next phase of Iggy's career. Ted, you did an awesome job creating and maintaining this blog! I will post with great respect for what you started.
So I hear people love to see photos, look out Iggy fans, photos you will have. I will be going to as many of Iggy's races as I can, the first one is at the LA Velodrome on the 24th.
Who am I, you wonder? Well, I am a huge cycling fan and a recreational rider (5000+ miles per year). I am an amateur photographer with a big dream to make it a profession. How lucky am I to be able to combine my two biggest passions in life? And the icing on the cake is the fact that my love for what I do can now benefit the Iggys. What a wonderful feeling.
I met the Iggys at the Dana Point Grand Prix on June 1, 2008. I had my telephoto lens pointed at the start of the Pro 1&2 race. Daddy Iggy walked right up to me and said "See that kid in the white jersey? Take a picture of him, he is my son. He is going to be a star." I had never seen a bike race in person, let alone photograph one. Having someone specific to focus on made all the difference and gave me a reason to be there. I ended up with some great shots (July 6, 2008 post).
Meeting the Iggy's has been a Godsend for me, this is going to be a really fun ride!
