Race on the Rock 2018: Uphill Drags

Those that attended the Western Sno-Riders 2018 Race on the Rock at Marble Mountain got quite a show!  The weather was challenging on Saturday for the uphill drags with high winds and blowing snow but that didn't stop the racers that came from all over Atlantic Canada.  I overhead someone say that there isn't a larger showing of horsepower on snow anywhere in Canada! 

Before we start i would like to extend my thanks to the Western Sno-Riders for not only hosting such an incredible annual event, but for everything their members did for me this weekend.  They got me access, kept me informed, gave me a place to warm up, offered hot drinks and food, and some great camaraderie!  I have to specifically point out both Marg and Nikita Howlett.  These photos would have never been possible without everything they did for me!

I would also like to thank the good folks at Fujifilm Canada who were able to get a Fujifilm X-H1 in my hands to shoot this event!  It held up to 12 hours of constant snow and wind, and performed admirably, to say the least.  Most of the images you see here were shot with the X-H1.  The rest were taken with an X-T2 and X70.

Now, go get yourself a coffee as this may take a while!
