More crazy fools. Photographed in the home of crazy fools…  Llanwrtwd wells, Powys. None of the papers pay attention to this crazy event but I just love it. It’s so much fun ( Plus they always have really nice burgers ! )

The idea of the event is to race around a course in special chariots built using traditional roman mountain bikes  and to race against each other and the clock to determine the  World Champion.

If you get the chance to get up there, Llanwrtwd Wells is also the home of the bog snorkelling championships ( Go check out the Green Events website for more crazy goings on. )   – another event i just love to photograph. From a press photographer’s point of view it’s just a great event to photograph. Even if it’s always raining !!! It is Wales after all.
