the italian job

with one comment

.. more or less business as usual, just with some ‘minor’ differences.. a mtb-marathon with rather little (just close to 300) participants, 500kms to reach it, and best of all – getting to know about it just some hours before having to depart..

so i went to sauris/ita alone, arriving there at 2 in the morning, getting up at 6 again, without knowing the track at all, trying to get a plan, looking for useable spots, and being readily set up there after the start at 9 .. luckily the weather was quite the opposite of what was to expect in advance.

it all went surprisingly smooth&easy, i quickly found what i was looking for on the track, set up my remotes and was ready to go well before the race started. all remotes worked flawlessly, and timing was perfect, so for less than 300 participants i produced more than 3000 photos, a mean of 10 photos per rider.. fortune favours fools :) ..

back home, 500kms straight, and done.
