STRATHPUFFER, SCOTLAND - JANUARY 26, 2013: A competitor in the 2013 Strathpuffer 24 hour Mountain Bike Race, an annual event held  in a forest near the village of Contin in the North-West Highlands of Scotland

I spent the weekend with friends who were competing in the 2013 Strathpuffer 24 hour mountain bike race (one for the first time). Whilst they were lapping away through the day and night - eventually to finish 27th - I sneaked off with my camera and took a few photos of competitors as they made their way around the course. Look out for more Strathpuffer images on my Facebook page over the next few days.
