Rather late than never as they say!
A week or so ago I had the pleasure of traveling up to one of my old regular shooting grounds; Townbush Trails (Cascades Mountain Bike Park), to cover the final leg of the Cycling South Africa XCO Cup Series.
Being a 'local' is always an advantage as you know your short cuts around the track. But, been away from Cascades for a while, I was a bit nervous I was going to forget a few things and loose my bearings. Luckily, this wasn't the case and everything managed to go to plan, and I didn't manage to get myself horribly lost in the forrest.
The racing was intense across all events, mostly close fought which made it super exciting to photography. A great course layout as always which aided in both ease of getting around and the tight racing that took place.
A massive well done to all the organisers for putting on such spectacle for all the riders and spectators.
Unlike what I mentioned above, the Elite races were a pretty one sided affair, with the various winners darting off from the gun to take a commanding victory in their respective events. But, none the less it was great to be back and shoot some proper entertaining racing.
A huge well done to everyone who took part, and a massive well done to all the winners. Was great to back behind the lens to capture you all in action.
