Earlier in the year I headed out with Troy to get some shots and go for a ride.
We started off first thing for road ride down the esplanade.
After that he got the freshly stickered Moto out and after a quick Subway sandwich we headed out to Gillman

ILMTB 2012 – Fox Creek Fast

Written by mtwmedia on . Posted in Blog, Downhill MTB, Inside Line 2012, Photography, Troy Brosnan

Last weekend the 5th round of the South Australian Downhill series was held up at the always popular  MTB mecca that is Fox Creek. Fox has been raced at for over a decade and has a great trail network for all types of riding.
Although the track used, officially called “Fox Creek Fast”, has been round for a few years, this was the first time a race was held on this course specifically. The boys had been eagerly digging and prepping the track over the past two weeks. Some new doubles and big gaps made the course super quick, and it was really living up to its name. That was until of course, race day!

It seems to happen all to often at SA MTB races, and this was no different. Come Sunday the gods let loose with rain all night and strong cold winds and multiple showers throughout the day.
This resulted in a very boggy track, since the most is thick red clay.

TB – as fast as ever

After a few months off after a massive injury, it was good to see Troy back on the bike racing again for the first time since his big off in Austria earlier in the year.

One person that wouldn’t have minded if Troy had just sat this one out, Tyson Schmit, who stormed onto the podium for the first time in 2nd place, behind Troy.

Liam Renaut has been a busy boy over the past 6 months. As well as filming the entire 2011/12 National series over summer, he’s also spent time catching up with some of Australia’s fastest guns in the downhill scene today. Including two times Junior World Champion Troy Brosnan, current World Cup Series female leader Tracey Hannah riding for their new Hutchinson United Ride Team, plus Joey Vejvoda and Andrew Crimmins.

Below: Liam lines up the next shot while Troy, as usual, waiting to walk back up, gets a few breaths in. Although he is only 18 he’s pretty much a veteran of this routine now.

Troy and Liam on the shoot

I was lucky enough to film with Liam for  Troy’s section on a local trail. Liam had his ideas sussed and it was cool to work with a young keen young filmmaker like him. I’m sure you’ll agree, he has the editing dialed in and as much as his filming.

Troy getting it dialed in

During the shoot, since my video shots were setup and locked off on the tripod, I managed to take a few stills of Troy pinning it in his new kit, complete with the Aussie flag down one side, made after he took the title for Australian National Champion at Eagle Park in February. Best of luck to Troy during the world cup series this year.
