On June 24th, I took photos of the 2007 Clifford Park Assault EFTA (Eastern Fat Tire Association) NECS (New England Championship Series) mountain bike race. The race is held at Clifford Park in Biddeford, Maine and is hosted by the Cape Able Bike Shop in Kennebunkport, Maine.
From what I hear, the Clifford Park Assault is a pretty rugged, grueling race. I found it to be really fun to take photos since I could run around and capture different parts of the race. But it’s pretty long, so I didn’t get to shoot photos of as many laps as I did at the Rotary Park Short Track in Biddeford, last year.
Here are some photos from the race.
That is Elizabeth Coleman, the 1st place rider in the Clifford Park Assault Expert Veteran Women category.
That is Michael Gault, the 1st place rider in the Clifford Park Assault Expert Senior I Men category. Michael was fun to shoot because he would do a little something extra each time I saw him, like that little jump on that downhill.
