I rarely bother to even look at sports photography as I tend to find it a bit - well boring

So imagine my surprise at opening this thread, only to be truly impressed with the photography of a subject I know sod all about but which looks like nutters hurtling themselves down mountains in a bid to see who can get to hospital first !!!

Brilliant set of photos @nessiemac :clap::clap::clap:

Wow, many thanks Dave. If you think the photos make it look nuts try and stand within touching distance as they fly past at up to 45 mph!! I do my best to capture how epic the course and riders are. Thanks again.

Great set with No 1 a standout. Were you using flash as the lighting is really good on most of the shots.
Thanks Simon. Haven't used flash at a race for years so no. Hardest part is to try and find decent light on a the course and work with the angles with whatever natural light you have.

That makes them even better. It didn't look like flash but you have a selection of shots with consistent great light over a number of obstacles. That isn't easy to do in those surroundings. Hats off great stuff
