Ride & Skid It - 29th September 17

Group Photo - 29th September 2017

Another great speedway session on Saturday at Ride & Skid It, Buxton, with the usual spread of novice to experienced riders.

It was raining!!

Weather wise the morning sessions weren't too bad even though it did rain a bit, the afternoon session towards the end was extremely wet as showers turned into a torrential downpour. I cut my photography short at that point and headed back to the car; I really must buy some weather protection for the photography equipment.

Some photos from the various sessions in chronological order along with some shots of the various riders as they awaited their turn to ride the bikes; So here goes!

Session 1

Finding your feet or probably more to the point your wheels.

Mud in the eye? She was smiling though

What dads do in their spare time!

Session 2 - The mini-track

The learning session! After photographing loads of sessions, this is the equaliser; whether the rider is novice or experienced its difficult to get to grips with!
