Day One at Urban Wheels
Posted 3 years ago
Day One. Urban Wheels Challenge 2015
I was excited for my two-day event photography stint at Urban Wheels, part of the Singapore Festival of Wheels, held at Singapore Sports Hub. I met my friends from HFWW team (Having Fun With Wheels) at Lor Buangkok. It was 6:30am in the morning and the day had yet to stir. But spirits were high and we were all happy that there was not much haze (which was good). We rode a lorry that carried 6 full suspension bicycles, 5 racers and a photographer (me). It took us only 20mins from Lor Buangkok to Sports Hub.

When I arrived at the event venue. I was a bit surprised that part of the race course featured a drop that looked insane and awesome at the same time. Fortunately there was a B line (a flight of stairs).
Stairs drop. Not bad uh?
Hmmm not bad over here and there. Hmmmm
Uncle Jef Ng is preparing the last-minute fixing of the table top ramp (3rd) and soon it was good to go.
Come to Papi! Of course he is very excited and he cannot wait to race!

This guy just making it look so easy to do the mini pump track. In fact, it is not that easy.
WAH! Why it is so hard!? I'm a professional rider!
Yes it is quite fun to watch people play at the mini pump track. How i wish we have one pernament pump track in Singapore.
Let's have fun with the mini BMX bike. Yes it is fun and tiring!
It was super fun, tiring, hot, humid and again FUN! Luckily there was not much haze in the whole day. :)
