With the shutter speed sorted for the 2017 Cookstown 100 I got a absolute mountain of photos.  Couple this with an amazing vantage spot I got some cracking photographs of some of the action and (hopefully) most of the riders.

If you see yourself feel free to tag yourself in the comments and I have full size images of all the photos, if you would like some of them please just let me know!

This was my first trip to the Cookstown 100 and it is an outstanding race meeting that I am looking forward to returning to!

2017 Cookstown 100 : Results

After last weeks soaking I had been keeping an constant eye on the weather forecast for Cookstown and the Cookstown 100 Races. 

It changed every day! Sunny, wet, overcast, wet, sunny but cold… it just changed every time I looked it up!
By this morning the forecast was dry but overcast and then some rain round about 1pm that should blow over pretty quickly. 

With that in mind I figured the trip would be worth it and I ventured towards my first ever Cookstown 100. 

It wasn’t far wrong…

As I said above this was my first Cookstown 100 and it is instantly one of my favourite race meetings. 

Maybe I was just lucky but the spot I managed to find was outstanding. The bikes were close, fast and spent most of the time I seen them either on the back wheel or in the air. It was truly amazing and has instantly made me a huge fan of this event! The effort these guys were putting in was breath taking. 

The event had many red flags, pretty much a red flag for every race – bar the 125 / Moto 3 race and the Classics. Thankfully there were no reports of any serious injuries. More than that, even with so many incidents to deal with the organisers still managed to get the full program raced – leading to a great day for the riders and spectators alike. 

I haven’t had a look through my camera yet but I think I managed some awesome photos so a full gallery will follow shortly but in the meantime here’s what you came here for…
