Yesterday was the first ever formal race day at Valmont Bike Park. There were XC races, dual slalom races, and the Colorado State Slopestyle Championships. I brought out the lighting kit and snapped some shots of competitors hitting the big “whale tail” ramp. Here are some highlights; I have a full set posted on my personal facebook page.
Here’s a shot of the overall scene at the park.
After the comp, I grabbed a couple riders for some shots at the last jump on the course.
Here is a front flip from the winner, AJ Anaya. This guy is a real pro, and threw down mad trick on every feature on the course. His double tail whips require video to really be appreciated!
