Bromont WC photo TR (or I need a digi SLR)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Some of these photos are messed up but I like them anyway. Digi SLR with flashes would be nice, but here's what I got without it.

(edit - I don't know why the photos are so small, but if you click on them, they get bigger)

Wow, some of those are really sweet!  I love the one of the guy airing out of the notch there - it looks crazy from that angle!    

Heh, I'm also stoked to see a few pics of me before I started my series of crashes...  Ugh.   Not a good performance on my part by any measure, but it's been an amazing experience nonetheless.    Thanks for taking pics!!

You must have been in a later heat, right?

 Yeah, my heat is next year at Mont St Anne when Masters World's goes there. That'll be my heat.

It was o muddy today. I think the pic of Mick Hannah being powerwashed says it all. I was pretty much covered just from spectating. I hope some of those pictures show how steep it is. There were a few where I had a little vertigo from looking through the camera too long and felt like I'd fall off the course.

Sunn, Lapierre and Mondraker are all uber-cool.

 If you are more of a video guy there is this - http://dirtmag.co.uk/news/category/videos/dirt-tv-bromont-world-cup-qualifying/dirt-1235495.html

It's really hard to walk up and down those steep sections. I don't know how they ride it so damn fast!

I like this one of you.  I said it before and I'll say it again.  Your enthusiasm for this sport inspires me to amp up my riding, though I can't imagine that I'll ever ride anything quite that gnarly.

Check out the angle of the trees and poles in this pic.......THAT's steep!

Nice pictures, epic. The chute under the Nissan banner looks pretty steep. The wooded sequence where you got the rider going by and three clicks later you are looking down on top of his head shows some rapid elevation change.

Just one off topic question... Is this part on photo above same as it was on xc race?? I saw video from race, and it looked pretty much same.

I don't think the XC course went up that high on the mountain. I'm sure it had it's share of rock though, that's just what the mountain is made of. The newest rock sections were really grippy with a  grit surface on them. The sections that have been in use for years were worn down smooth and slippery as ice. Of course everything was slippery with a  layer of mud on it.

Sorry I missed it completely... I went back to see that xc video and it was actually from Mt. Saint Anne, not Bromont. But at least it was same continent :) I don't know, part of course looked very similar to this photo I quoted earlier, but as I said... my mistake :)
