Nitro Circus world record attempt at the O2 Arena

August 2015

We had a great shoot recently with the Nitro Circus at the O2 Arena in London. As a promotion with Cineworld and to launch the new Nitro Circus DVD, 19 of the worlds best motorcross riders assembled in the O2 to go for a world record attempt for the number of riders in the air pulling a 360 spin. We arrived early and shot groups and portraits of the riders before spending the morning shooting the practice runs and finding the best angles for the record attempt itself. Of all the worlds press, I was given the task of getting the main shot of the jump and would be the only photographer in a central position facing the crowd, no pressure! The main event kicked off in front of a huge screaming crowd and with 16 riders in the air at one time, all doing a 360 spin, a new world record was set.
