Muddy Motocross – Preston Guild Wheel

The day I took this photo (as with this one) was the first (and maybe last) time I’ve ever walked around the Guild Wheel in Preston. It was part of a fundraising event for Brindle Brass Band to go to the National championships in Cheltenham

A mile or so past Avenham park, there’s a small bodged motocross track that I’ve never seen get any use either before or since this day. This chap was looping around enough so that I could take my time and line up a shot of him hopping over the bigger of the few jumps. I especially like the specs of dirt trailing up and away from him.
