Acres of scrubby bush filled with old coal-mining shafts, rocks and gravel right in suburban Ipswich... Wasted space?  If you're a real estate agent, yes!  But turn it over to a group of die-hard mountain bikers and you get the perfect setting for a rough, exciting, and technically challenging mountain bike course.  November 3 and 4 saw the Ipswich Cycling Club hosting the state mountain bike championships.  Riders from near and far descended on Ipswich to try their luck on the treacherous grounds of the former Brynhyfryd 'castle'.  (For the story on how Ipswich managed to have a Welsh castle, follow this link).

So, braving the 35 degree heat of an early summer, I trudged out to capture my first mountain bike shoot.  I didn't really know what to expect, but soon found myself some good vantage points to capture the action.

 

The results of the shoot are here.  Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed taking them!
