..and the fastest downhill rider of Nordkette Downhill.PRO, with time under 10 mins is….the Columbian Marcelo Gutierrez wearing start number No1 and being the last rider to go down the trail. Here he is at the last jump, just before the finish line. Not the most spectacular of jumpers, but he had the best time – you can see it at the bottom left corner of the picture.
Just for the record, The Nordkette track is one of the most difficult and steep trails in Europe.

Action sports are not something I have shot lately. So I thought “why not” , let’s give it a try. Good atmosphere at those events. Midday heat, no shade, perfectly toned half naked men covered in sweat and dust by the finish – these are top athletes, people! Hot babes like Nina (i was kinda embarassed to take a photo of her) – too pretty. Cool music and adrenaline you can smell.
Looking at the other pictures from other photographers from the event, they are prefering a different editing, with high pass filter to accentuate shapes and lines. And wide angle lenses. But oh well, I am not making a living out of this. I was just having fun 🙂
