Saturday morning we were up at the crack of dawn, packed up the cars after a quick breakfast then drove for about half an hour to the Comshingaun in the Comeragh Mountains, the location of our shoot. It is an absolutely stunning place, and we couldn’t have hoped for better weather, it was a cold crisp morning with sunny blue skies and there was snow on the top of the mountain.
We trekked for a good hour or so before we reached the peak where we started shooting. The views were amazing, check out the photos below. We filmed for about 5 hours until we lost the sunlight behind the mountain then headed back to Tom’s camper van for a cup of tea to warm us up, and a look over the footage. Tom and Greg did pretty well pushing their bikes up the mountain time and time again, Greg was worried he wouldn’t be able to dance that night as his legs were getting sore!!
Next up: Filming is a bit behind schedule because of the bad weather. We also planned to do a session with Belfast rider Ewan Doherty this weekend but he is out with a broken hand. Hope he gets better soon. Another day with Colin Ross this week should finish his section, then Irish Pro Ben Ried, and a few other final days out should have filming wrapped up towards the end of February.
