Cairns weather can be variable, and in previous years it has rained in the preamble to race day, and been fine, or there abouts on race day. This year was to be the opposite. Cool and wet, perhaps good conditions for racing but not for photography. Pouring rain all day made for difficult shooting conditions. Keeping the cameras dry enough becomes difficult and keeping rain spots off the lenses is even harder. Being peppered with raindrops at high speed on the motorcycle is not much fun either. Being prepared for whatever happens is often part of photographing sport. Days like these can be the most challenging, and some of the most fun.
