BDS Rd 1 Nant Gwrtheyrn

I have been pretty flat out the last week...hence the slight lack of posts.

Started off with a VERY early start last Thurs morning to head up to the Quantocks to do a shoot for MBR, then stay over night at camp Anderson, then off to Rd 1 of the BDS ( www.halobritishdownhillseries.com ) at Nant Gwrtheyrn in N.Wales.

A new venue for 2011, never been there before, great venue, good track, even better cafe.

1 day of dry weather, one of fucking piss...Hard work in that weather, especially when you have to shoot both stills and video for some of the biggest teams and magazines...so hard work but worth it.

Cant put to much online, or anything of anyone that got a top flight result, but here's a few teasers of the 2nd rate shots...

Rich Thomas who I got a lift up with taking a shot while driving through the amazing landscape of N.Wales

There where a few big names at the race...

The wet muddy track gave a few riders some trouble...

Rocks and more rocks...

Juice Lubes rider Adam Price who I shot for PROFILES in the last rock garden on the steep part of the track

Em David the welsh pinner, well...pinning!

Unknown rider, nice pan...

Leon Rosser in the top woods

Dan Critchlow on the bottom rock jump

Anyway keep an eye on the big sites for the work I did for the Madison/Saracen team soon... ( who had a good weekend with 2 wins in youth and elite women's )
