Ride & Skid It 01 Jul 17

03rd July 2017

Date: 01 July 2017


KenBobs’ Skidders and I did notice the two fingers!

Almost thirteen months ago, I made my first visit to a Ride & Skid It session to see if I could cut the mustard as the photographer. As it happened the session had a group of young bucks on a stag do (KenBob & Co), a couple of media people (Sophie McGinn & Luke Bowler) and just to make it a day, Carl “Foggy” Fogarty!
Good day to choose then.

Anyway on Saturday it was the return of KenBob, KenBob Revisited. So to remind KenBob of his previous visit, a few photos from a year ago.

Ken purchased quite a few photos and a video from the event last year however I didn’t actually speak to him on the day so it was very nice to meet Ken on Saturday and put a face to the name.

And for the occasion I have just bought a Canon 100 – 400mm telephoto lens as I’ve been disappointed with the results from the 70 – 200mm lens + 1.4x Extender.

Even though Saturday was a private session it was run on the usual format: Familiarization, Mini-track, Follow the leader and lastly putting the learning into practice.

Familiarisation

A sesión when the riders take it easy as they get the feel of the bikes and the track








Mini-track

This session sorts out the men from the boys and definitely harder than it looks by all accounts!








Follow the Leader & Free for all















And we can't get away without some pics of the stars of the show
