Bike Jump Competition Practice

Couple off shots of one of the guys practicing on the jumps across the road from where I live.

These were both shot at 1/500th which leads me to believe that Rollei is due for a bit of shutter maintenance.

The competition was a couple of weekends ago now and unfortunatley I had to work and then it rained before I finished so didn’t manage to get any more shots…

Developing a whole heap of stuff from the Rugby Sevens today so should have more from that tomorrow….

Bike Track Jump Packing Down

The bike track across the road is still under construction and it seems that they are having problems packing down the bigger jumps.

Problem solved, just drive your car back and forth up and down them… This tactic seems to be working pretty well.

I am hanging out for them to be finished to go shoot some extreme air time… Rollei might have to give way to 7 frames a second F5 and 35mm Film 🙂
