It's Downhill all the way.......

15th May 2016

The experience was somewhat more pleasant for this months Velo Club Downhill MTB race, Round-3.

Last time it was raining and the track was reduced to a slippery roller-coaster of a ride. I found it almost impossible to find a spot to shoot from where I felt stable enough to make panning shots.

This occasion the competitors, and 'togs, were enjoying near perfect conditions. For a start it was bright and sunny, also the coarse was just damp enough to offer good grip.

I only had a short time to capture the first run before moving on to another job but whilst it was all downhill for the MTB riders I'd say things (conditions) were definitely on the up for this photographer :-)

Fingers are crossed that the next Round will offer more of the same, please.
