Downhill mountain bikers are a different breed, a huge amount of respect to throw yourselves down a muddy hill when conditions were far from ideal. The Ricochet MTB Downhill event – Aston Hills Bike Park in Buckinghamshire, a great event which was incredibly well organised by Firecrest Mountain Biking. I think the spectators had worse conditions than the riders! My gallery from the event below.
I was out photographing the riders with a few fellow photographers and Mark Pain, the professional sports photographer. Despite the rain it was a awesome day.
