Slabs, Slams, Slop, Stoke and a Bush Doof | The Derby EDR with Kristina Vackova
Despite feeling exhausted from a long and exciting weekend in Maydena, I was thrilled to be asked to return to Derby for another round of shooting. With limited time to rest due to my day job, I eagerly made my way to Derby to capture yet another thrilling weekend of Enduro Racing.
From the incredible crowds to the challenging conditions, Derby did not disappoint. Although my original intention was to focus on lifestyle photos of the energetic crowds and the stunning landscapes of Blue Derby, the intense racing action compelled me to capture more images of the riders themselves.
Even when I found myself drenched in the rain, along with my poor phone, I still enjoyed photographing in Derby, regardless of the weather conditions. It was an exhilarating experience to be part of the madness and to meet so many amazing people along the way. Is this what they call ‘type-2 fun’?
