Seen at Lysterfield Park

I took a walk along Mahogany Track to see if I could see any different birdlife. But I was soon interrupted by this team of MTB riders.  My husband is the second from the front and thought I should have taken a photo of them as they were coming towards me. So I thought I’d take one as they were leaving me.

I really am enjoying taking action shots at the mountain bike races.  I wonder what the riders think seeing themselves in action?

Out on the track.  I moved around to get different shots and angles of the riders as they rode past.

On the weekend we stayed in Bendigo, travelling up on Saturday and staying overnight in a small cottage and then leaving early the following morning for the race just out of town.  There were a few hundred people there and it didn’t take long for the tent city to grow and take shape.

Below: My husband Graham leading this small group.  The laps were approx 9.5km in length and the race was for 6 hours. His team, Team Sally, did 10 laps in total.
