Capturing the Excitement of Pump Track Racing in Odranci, Slovenia

Recently, I covered a pump track race in Odranci, Prekmurje, Slovenia, and let me tell you, it was lit! I used my trusty Sony A7 III, and the results were: WOW! I mean, capturing a biker flying by at breakneck speed with a click of a button doesn’t get more exhilarating than that. As always at these kinds of events, I met some cool people, swapped contacts, and even arranged for a future photo shoot. That’s what I love about shooting events, you get to capture amazing snaps and also make some cool new friends. I can’t wait for the next season and more races!

Introducing: An Action-Packed Sport and a Photographer’s Adventure

Oh, I almost forgot to give you more information about pump track racing! It is a type of BMX and mountain biking race where riders navigate a circuit of bumps and jumps using momentum and pumping (hence the name “pump track”) to maintain speed. It’s a high-energy, fast-paced sport that requires skill, technique, and bravery. The races are usually held on a purpose-built track with a series of berms, rollers, and jumps. It’s a blast to watch and even more fun to shoot!

Sports Photography: A New Challenge on the Track

As a photographer, pump track racing offers a unique challenge. You have to be quick on your feet to capture the riders as they zoom by, but also make sure to capture the intensity and excitement of the race. I love the fast pace and the fact that every race is different, so there’s always a new shot to capture. Plus, you get to be up close and personal with the action, which is always a thrill.

I hope this gives you a better understanding of pump track racing and why I love it so much. If you have any suggestions for my next post or any questions about it, feel free to drop me a comment below or hit me up on Twitter!
