If like me you’ve never understood the attraction of being off road but on only two wheels, then spend one afternoon watching a MotoCross race. The power, the noise, the speed, the mud, the flying and of course the competition (both against yourself and others); all add up to make a fun race and a great sport. The racers are crazy to say the least.
The last race of the season was yesterday. Adrenaline posted about MotoCross some time back; and about this race, he posted again last week. It’s a nicely organised event – and screems in the face of anyone who claims there isn’t much to do in Kuwait. The hospitality was wonderful, the location convenient, and the atmosphere very relaxed and welcoming. I will take the family next time. I had planned to but my daughter, Noor, was very poorly yesterday and is recovering today.
A couple of years ago, I bought a lens that was far too big for me. I think I used it twice in all that time – making me feel very guilty indeed… I finally grew into it and it was a great feeling to use it… properly. Below are some of my favourite shots from yesterday’s race. Larger versions are available of all images on this post – just click the photograph itself.
