I've just booked my accommodation to come down and shoot this and I'm considering putting up some prize money for the most photographer friendly outfit (clothes and bike)...

Some of the best shots I get action wise look boring as hell due to the rider wearing a black t-shirt and a pair of jeans.

The guys (and gals) wearing sponsor supplied gear and nice bright kit almost always look better in photos, and from a technical viewpoint, cameras work better on bright contrasty clothes - the autofocus can pick them up more accurately.

So please, leave your black t-shirts at home :-) It's like when I shoot drifting and the guys take their front bumpers off... Uggh. Ugly.
