It was a blisteringly cold day down at the Forest of Dean for the Mini Downhill, with the riders choosing to brave the temperatures, the race was a sell out non the less.
It could have been worse, rain was forecast but thankfully this held off.
The track was short with a little amount of interesting features, but that did mean I could walk the track a few times, getting different compositions.
A few jumps and rock drops, meant I stayed around for the rad riders to drop the tricks.
With the light conditions, I dropped the shutter speed and tried out some different angles. Dropping down to 1/10 at times.
Some amazing light appeared for a short time, but even with the sun bursting through the trees, I still had to push the ISO to get a fast enough shutter speed to capture the riders smashing over the roots. At times, I was shooting at ISO12800, wide open.

Cheers Chris and team, I will hopefully make it down to the next one.
