long way – short trip

with 2 comments

some snapshots (to be taken literally) of a 10 day – including 2 days sitting in planes – trip to australia, sydney and canberra where we covered the world’s biggest 24hr-mtb-race .. great race, great country, way too little time..

some very small and different event for a change 8) .. four wheels instead of two, beneath “cars” that usually are kid’s play, known as “bobby cars” here in europe. little children usually are sliding over the floor with them, but some bigger children decided to mod them a little and race with them down their village’s road, reaching speeds of 60km/h and more.. calling it “bobbyX”..

another 24 hours on mountainbikes.. just..

with one comment

this time it’s been a bit different.. the track was a little shorter than usual, to be exact just around 850 meters, in return it got quite some turns (mostly 180s even), and well.. it’s been indoors.. it’s said to have been a world premiere – well quite likely there weren’t many people before having such a crazy idea.. 8) around 160 participants (as usual most in teams), were fighting for every meter on what proved to be a more selective track in the exhibition hall of freistadt (upper austria), than many have thought at first.. and it seemed that even the more sceptic starters found that it was fun and something different in the end..

latest sportographics

without comments

just a quick link to the two latest (and likely last for this year) events i did with/for sportograf.com.

first the mountainbike world cup finals in schladming which were – well – worldcup.. a little more of everything all around, spectators, racers, skills.. and some disciplines i haven’t shot before.. in the gallery u find some of my favourite shots plus some of fellow shooter matteo (all file’s names not starting with “MK”) who was with me covering this event.

and then there was munich, another 24 hour race, actually the biggest one in europe.. 1500 participants, resulting in over 44000 photos online for them.. interesting track in the munich “olympia-park”, was fun and of course straining again – but well – for the love of sport ;) .. as we’ve been a lot of photographers there many of my photos look quite similar as we all stayed at single spots for a longer time than usual, of course also having to take into account the huge number of bikers, many being part of teams and therefore not being on the track all the time..
