Whittas Park, Bassenthwaite, Cumbria Twinshock Motocross Photos

Wednesday 22nd June saw us up at Whittas Park, near Bewaldeth, Bassenthwaite photographing the Cumbria Twinshock Motorcross.

A great evening, the weather held for the duration despite the poor forecast apart from a few spots of light rain. I sincerely hope the rider that was stretchered away towards the end of the evening wasn’t too badly hurt and is up and about.

Photos from this event are now available on our galleries page.

Hacked: Apologies

Please accept our apologies if you’ve tried to get on the site over the last couple of days without success. It transpires we had been hacked.

Hopefully we are now back up and running, and whilst there are a couple of admin tweeks to do, the site is back to 99% operational.

This evening I was at Bassenthwaite and DMC charity trial ride at Thirleme in the Lake District.

Weather held for most of the event with only slight drizzle until nearer the end. A great evening and lots of fun, pity the light wasn’t better for the photography.

Ennerdale Horseshoe Fell Race 2011 photos

Photos from the Ennerdale Horseshoe Fell Race 4th June 2011 organised by the Cumberland Fell Runners Association.

view towards buttermere & crummockMy intention was to photograph the runners at todays event as the climbed the crest in the left hand side of the picture, with the stunning Buttermere valley vista behind. Sadly whilst waiting I heard a shout behind me and realised the first runner had gone through having somehow come via a different route. After a hasty retreat to another vantage point every single other runner came through my original location.

Borrowdale Trail 2011 Photos

What a lovely day, sat in Ladore Wood above Ashness Bridge, with only the occasional shower brrr!

Despite my choosing a rather uncomfortable uphill section to photograph, many of the competitors smiled and even joked, appearing quite jovial despite their discomfort.  I especially like Charlies Angels – girls you know who I mean!

Well done to all!

The photos are now available in our events gallery.

With the vast number of outdoor events and activities taking place, particularly on public roads, here in the Lake District it’s great to see the wonderful service provided by the St Johns Ambulance volunteers always seem to be on hand.

More recently in the North West Lakes they’ve been using this customised mountain bike, which is fantastic asset.  So if your watching an event, don’t forget to cheer these guys as well as the competitors.
