Phat Wednesday – Schleyer

The Phat Wednesday crew chose a fantastic course on July 17th.  Schleyer an all-time Whistler favourite trail, into a fairly technical final descent down lower Detroit Rock City.

I was able to get up on course to practice my mountain bike photography before I raced the track.  My skills in this field are very minimal.  It is amazing that every Wednesday there is a great opportunity to shoot racers of a very high caliber.  Hopefully I’ll figure it out eventually.  If anyone has any tips or advice please feel free to comment.

Riders of all abilities and ages show up to compete.  Some of the kids that race are tiny yet they absolutely kill it.

All of these shots were taken on a wide-angle lens.  Next week I think I’ll go back to a regular zoom lens and try a different technique.
