National cross country - dalton
Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to try something new! I was off to Dalton to photograph my first Cross Country Nationals for KTM South Africa and Husqvana South Africa. Its always scary doing something for the first time, but at the same time its also really exciting knowing that I'm going to learn some new tips and tricks.
With the weather leading up to the event being rather unpleasant and the predicted weather for the event looking just as bad, my mind just thought of mud fest here we come! After photographing many cycling events in the pouring rain, I at least knew what to expect! The key difference was, in cycling, cyclists don't spray you with mud as they pass by, but it was all great fun.
It was great to see some familiar faces, such as Brad Cox; who sadly didn't finish due to a knee injury, as well as meet some new faces who made the day pleasantly entertaining. A massive congratulations to everyone who took part and managed to finish in those tough conditions!
With all that said it was great to go out and try something new, I thank ZCMC for giving me the amazing opportunity to get out there. Here's to hoping this is the start of many more.
