There must have been a little rain overnight and there was some mist hanging around the top of the hill... This made the first corner realllly slippery and in about 5 minutes of watching there were 3 falls - including one pretty decent one into the big rock on the inside of the corner.

The diffuse light that the overcast conditions brought is pretty much the perfect conditions to shoot in - much less in the way of harsh shadows... This plus a little greasiness on the track and a little more pressure with actually having to go fast all seemed to be bringing it together for a great day.

I did get lazy today and spent a lot of time at the bottom of the rock garden, but it was so entertaining!

The fully processed images from raceday are here and there are 110 of them:

Had to stop at the first jump on the way down...
Image

Nice dismount
Image

Pinned. Barely touched the ground...
Image

Um. not pinned. Did touch the ground (Full sequence on site)
Image

Had a bad run through the rock garden... This is fall 3...
Image

Another fall.. watch that wrist...
Image

Not a fall, but one of the least elegant runs through the slippery section in the morning.
Image

And as usual, some people made it look simple

This is good shit. This is showing off to the camera and I approve. Contact me Mr #159 for your free full sized image :-)

This damn dog was running up and down the actual track for several minutes before being brought under control. Grrrrrrr
Image

I was too close to really catch the action, but coming in nose heavy on the first of the triple jump didn't work out to well for this gent and he landed 5-6 metres off track in the gorse. Nothing badly hurt in terms of bones or sudden stops but Ouch.
Image

I just really like this shot. Lots of concentration
Image

After setting fastest time in the seeding, Brooke ran last in the race but the usual suspects stepped up their game. Brooke still took a podium so great job.
Image

I'll be back for Oceanias.
