Week 02- Munich to Styria

June 13, 2010

Attended the awesome STROKE02 Exhibition in Munich before heading up to the mountains in Styria for the worlds toughest Enduro race ! THe Red Bull Hare Scramble ! The terrain is hard..the riders… HARDCORE !! Check out some of the highlights !

Pre race activities include whats called the Storm of Erzberg where thousands of bikers ride through the towns in a giant motorcade.

Racers emerging from the dust in the most punishing motor endurance race. Shot this on my absolute fav lens the Canon EF 300 f2.8 !! Bloody awesome lens!! SO sharp so sharp !!

The landscape is just fantastic. Still shooting on the Canon 300 f2.8 before running for my wide angle as the riders pass my post.

Not for the faint of heart…

Thousands entered, 15 finish.

Up next !!From the mountains in Styria to the Mountains in Tyrol !

      Hey Aaron Thanks ! Im definitely on auto focus ! its too short a time for you to manually focus.Usually i set the AF points to which part of the frame Im trying to get the biker in then set the AF to AI Servo and fire away ! I also shoot alot of the test riders or non racers to test shoot so when the main guys come Im all set !
