GMBC 2008 Highlights

Article submitted by James Kirby

I wasn't photographing officially this time around, but decided to get out on the trails and get some great photos of the rides.

All the photography I took can be viewed on Flickr (new window).


The Start ... straight out of the centre and up!

600 Riders ... a steady stream of riders were coming past for the 40 mile event.
600 Mountain Bikers

And More ... it just went on like this for three minutes!

Moor Top ... I decided to get a few here and think I found a really nice bit of the course.

    That's one of the best face-plant action photos I have ever seen! Absolutely fantastic!!!!! I hope that ends up as the logo for next year. I laughed for about 2 minutes on seeing that.
