Watery MTB


They have a floating bridge on the ASG trail at Rosemary Hill. If you don’t know what a floating bridge is, its a whole lot of wood held together in the form of a path about a meter wide, that floats on the surface of the water. Only just. It doesn’t hold the weight of a person with bicycle but, if you are moving fast enough, you can get across without sinking. Unless you make a mistake. Here are some photos I took at the recent 24hr race. From a photography point of view, the challenge here was to keep shutter speeds down so as to get some really nice pans and blurry motion. In this kind of photography, it’s important to show motion in wheels, spokes, pedals and other moving bits.



Then there’s the rest of the course – some great singletrack and a few technical bits.
