Back in time…2017 National Champs, Bala.

AO0I9882

A weekend away up north I say to some of my friends, people always say to me ah you going up north? What like London way hahaha no silly I’m going to North Wales Llangynog…..Where? Exactly I’m off up to shoot the Down Hill National Championships, the look I get is like why on earth would you do that…..you would never know hahaha, after a 4/5hr drive I was there, Revoultion Bike Park car park, checked into hotel Caddy Maxi for the night (back of the van) very comfy sleep!! Not really knowing my surrounding as it was pitch black and couldn’t see in front of my face!! I bedded down for the night.

Early start for me and I was ready to roll to the race village, camera ready and enough kit to cast the day on the hill.

AO0I0691

On the hill I went, I’ve never been to Bala before, so I was keen to get up the top and have a look to whats going on. It was a little to late as all the top boys and girls started flooding through so I hung onto the flat grass corner which provided some epic times!!.
