Pray For Lourdes
  -    -  Pray For Lourdes

Last month, I was lucky enough to travel to Lourdes, France for the first race of the 2015 Downhill World Cup season and I witnessed one of the gnarliest and wildest tracks ever.

I have no idea if I was the only guy (besides Hoshi Yoshida and his Leica M6) shooting a World Cup race with an old, cheap film camera. Everyone else had this super expensive digital set ups and was able to shoot a hundred photos per second every time a rider appeared in front of their lenses. But for me, it was only one click. One chance. Sometimes it was really frustrating, but in the end I had fun doing it.

You have probably seen the live coverage and the post-race articles on the biggest MTB websites, but this is different. Enjoy this unconventional photo gallery with some of the fastest guys on two wheels.
