Ride& Skid It - 01 August 17

Group Photo 01 Aug 17

Tuesdays Ride & Skid It event was my first evening session starting at five. Most of the way to Buxton it had rained however as I neared Buxton the rain eased off and it turned into a really nice evening. There were some dark skies but at times the light was wonderful casting some nice shadows of the riders on the track.

The session was run on the usual format: Familiarization, Mini-track, Follow the leader and lastly putting the learning into practice.


The group usually tend take this one pretty easy while they get the feel of the bike and the track and this was no exception; I was spoiled by the riders from the stag do session!

This lads getting it!

He couldn't get the bike over much more without falling & he didn't!

Follow the Leader & Free for all.

The session where the learning is hopefully put into practice! There were a number of fallers during the session but unfortunately I was in the wrong place to capture them. The light had started to go during this session so the ISO had to be increased to maintain the shutter speed and unfortunately the downside being the increase in noise but I think photos are acceptable although some may benefit from being made monochrome.

Converted to mono and some selective colouring
