ROUND 7 and 8 - MOUNTAIN BIKE AUSTRALIA 2018 Cross country National Series

April 05, 2018  •  8 Comments

I had the opportunity to capture amazing mountain bike riders showing off their skills in one of Australia's World class tracks.  Stromlo Forest Park in Canberra held the last two rounds of the Australian Mountain Bike National Series for 2018, an event that tested the riders through extremely steep dusty inclines, massive rock drop offs and winding down hill track, were speed and skill would test all the riders.

Day 1 was the start of Round 7 and with all my camera gear packed I started the steep climb to an area which is called 'THE HAMMER HEAD'.  This area was recommended to me by the riders as a fantastic place to capture action shots of the insanely steep decline and I was not disapointed.

The steep rocks were testing for everyone,  some riders deciding to walk there bikes down and other riders taking the chance, unfortunately taking the wrong line and ending up battered and bruised.

The rough terrain too much for even the toughest mountain bikes

At the bottom of the steep 'Hammerhead' Section was an opportunity for riders to smile and show a sign of relief as they conquered another challenge Stromlo put towards them.  Clicking their bikes into a higher gear, speeding off to the next section.

Between each stages you could hear the engine of a trials bike checking that the coarse is clear to start the next stage.  Amazing balance from this rider. 

Day 2 started off to be an awesome Sunday morning, cool temperatures and slightly overcast ready for me to catch some amazing riding.  The first section I was camped at was an area called 'G20'.  This was another steep rock face,  although the riders hitting this downhill section with more speed.

At each difficult stage there were options to take either the 'A' or 'B' Section, The 'A' section was harder and shorter, although sometimes it made more sense to take the 'B' section which was slightly easier although slightly longer and safer.

There were many spectators cheering the riders on, many parents praying to the phone gods,  wishing their kids a safe ride through these difficult sections.

'After the 'G20' section, it was all down hill.   The riders reaching one of the last section called 'THE LUGE'. This sections was made up of series of berms.  Berms were tight turns usually alternating in direction, winding all the way down towards the finish line.

Congratulations to all the riders who participated in Round 7 and 8 of the Australian Mountain Bike National Series for 2018.  To watch everyone maneuver themselves around Canberra's insanely difficult course was memorable.

Thank you to the well organises CORC (Canberra Off Road Cyclists), for giving me the opportunity to take some photos of this amazing race.  It has definitely opened my eyes to another sport and also realise, you are never to old to hop on a bike and get out and enjoy the outdoors.
