DH Nationals, Christchurch - Round One

On Sunday we went to round one of the New Zealand Downhill Nationals, in Victoria Park, Christchurch.

The track was one we had photographed before so we knew where we wanted to be and what we were looking for.

The corner we were on was a berm full of dust.

Very few people actually made it through the corner without some sort of crash or partial crash...

Luckily because the dust was so soft no one got seriously hurt!

We also got a shot Nick had been wanting to get for YEARS! 

(Unfortunately we can't share this image yet - it's for good reason and we will share as soon as we can!)

;D

Enjoy the images - I even made a few GIF's of the more spectacular crashes!
