Two weeks in Ourimbah

Shimano GP Round 2

Outer image have been back on track at Ourimbah over the last 2 weeks. After a short break we stuck back into things with the second round of the Shimano GP.

It was a good-sized turnout who hit the tracks with the soundtrack of whip birds and lyre birds singing in the bush. There was lots of familiar faces including many who we haven’t seen for a while but there was also lots of new faces which is always great to see. Ourimbah is only an hour or so from Sydney so it’s a big favourite of Sydney riders

Being that Ourimbah is the Rocky Trail home track, we have been shooting here since we started shooting with them so it’s always a little struggle to find new shots and new angles especially when we have so many favorite spots. When we do stop by a familiar spot on the track and shoot a few shots it’s great to look back at our images from the early races to compare and see how we have progressed and how our vision has changed

Fox Superflow round 3

Same place, different tracks, different race. This time it was the turn of the Superflow enduro racers to hit Ourimbah. Another big turnout with numbers topping the 300 mark this time.

Running on 2 tracks this time Ourimbah tested everyone this time. From the technical sections of lower downhill track to the uphill pedalling on the xc track. While some people did well on one track the other tended to throw them off a bit.

Rocky trail put on some great races which are as much about a day out with friends as it is about the racing. If you are thinking of giving the MTB races a spin definitely check them out and come join the fun. You can find out more about Rocky Trail Entertainment here.

Red Ass Downhill State Championships – Ourimbah

Last weekend it was the turn of downhill to come under scrutiny of the lens. Gil and I travelled up to Ourimbah on the New South Wales Central Coast this time to shoot the Red Ass ACT/NSW State Downhill Championships. The aim of the shoot was to get some ideas for new angles, locations from the Ourimbah downhill track and just to have a bit of fun while we were at it. I shot only in the first 200m of the downhill track this time, there is more than enough features there to keep me happy shooting for the day whilst Gil shot at the features lower down. The shots below are a small sample from the day. More images can be viewed and purchased from Richard McGibbon Photography or Giro Photo
