Managed to stay on my bike for quite a while when riding in Inverness but soon had to go and get my camera. The temptation is always there but I do end up getting the shot that I want!
After being in Germany for 10 days I really wanted to go riding myself and get away from filming for a few days. I have managed to get a few days off and came back home to Inverness.
I didn’t manage very long with out using a camera so tried out the GoPro remote which although took a good few minutes to finally connect it was brilliant and convenient once linked.
Yesterday myself and Andy walked up the Die Teck to meet Rab for some filming of the local trails we found. It was brilliant filming it over 3 hours, editing in the evening and getting it online by 2am.
GoPro Diary #2
With our first race done we are glad to have a few days to relax and see a bit of Germany.
Rab came 30th overall out of 80 riders with an impressive time of 1:29.38. Now with our next few days off Rab will be training, Andy working on the bike and I shall be following it all with my my camera.

GoPro Diary #1
We finally made it into Germany after a bit of a delay which did result in us getting money off flights, free food, the KLM Lounge and unlimited beer. Wonderful.
Yesterday was the first day of practice and gave Rab a good chance to ride in his new Trek Factory Racing Superfly. We are really lucky to be staying near some amazing hills and scenery with a great hotel, unfortunately we have no WIFI which goes to show how wrapped up in our phones we get!
Today is the first race with Rab who is in a good position on the start line and ready to compete. With the temperature finally rising almost to 20 it should be a rad day of shooting and riding.
Updating the website and found this shot of a spectator at the Fort William World Cup.
