The Wide Eyed World was featured on MountainBike.com this week after spending last weekend shooting at Crankworx Colorado. The festival took place at Winter Park Ski Area and featured a full compliment of freeride mountain bike events. Leslie was on hand for all of the events and got a front row seat for all four days of high-flying action.
Perhaps one of her most embarrassing moments came when she had to duck out of the way when a slopestyle rider that miss-timed a jump and ended up falling into the pit she was shooting from. Both rider and photographer escaped the ordeal with minimal injury.
Wide Eyed World also got to connect with Action Photo School’s Conner Walberg. As a Colorado-based photographer, he is an knowledgable expert on the subject of action sports. Check out his latest tips on shooting events like the UCI Downhill at Crankworx.
Wide Eyed World is psyched to be featured on MountainBike.com and is looking forward to future projects. Look for an upcoming feature about Leslie and Chris’ days with IMBA on the Trail Care Crew.
