The Hurt3 and Purple Patch DTUF Half 2013 now live

Just the two events from the weekend - both very popular and in perfect conditions, if you missed them then make sure you put a date in your diary for next years, all had excellent turnouts and great feedback from everyone who took part.

Here are the gallery links:



We're downing tools for a brief summer break this weekend, but then it's back at it for the rest of the year... I'm going to try to find out what having a weekend off is all about as we've not had one yet this year.
Otherwise I hope you're enjoying the sun and the little bits of rain we're having at the moment.

By the way - there's a new rule - if you pull a move, funny face, mobot or bolt, wave or thumbs up - you have to buy your copy and share it on facebook ! (other social websites are available..)

A sense of victory, even only at 2 miles...

Jumping for joy with a mile left to go !
Right that's it, time to pay the staff, clear the orders, sort out the tax and get ready for a weekend off. Let me know how your weekend goes, and try not to get caught out by the horrendous road closures in Surrey and South london with this thing: http://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/ this weekend.

Call me cynical, but I remind you that the Michelin guide was invented to get drivers out of Paris to puncture their tyres and drive up sales (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelin_Guide). Here we have a major insurer encouraging lots and lots of bike riding. Can you see the link yet ?

It is however interesting to see sponsored free photos, and I'll happily point out that we were the first event photography company to start that for mass participation events :-) and continue to provide this service - if you're interested in how it works and what we can do for your brand or company - then please get in touch info@sussexsportphotography.com it's at least ten times more effective than traditional event sponsorship...

Until next time !
