The Jam Event Östersund
We’ve only moved to Jämtland a couple of weeks ago and have already been to so many great events! This weekend was the first time for Hamperium Photography to see snowmobiles and bikes fly through the air whilst the guys driving them performed cool acrobatics. We are already looking forward to next year’s The Jam Event! Check out our portfolio for some more pics of this seriously cool event.
Emelie Forstberg / AXA Fjällmarathon
What an awesome event is the AXA Fjällmarathon: 43 km and 1800m terrain diffences. Of the 200 athletes that signed up, 140 ladies finished the race. Emelie Forsberg set a great pace and finished in 4:01:21. Emilie Collinge came second 16 minutes after Forsberg and Mimmi Kotka completed the first 3, finishing in 4:33:28. Don’t hesitate to check out our portfolio for some more great action pics.
Skutan Runt is a unique running event in the great surroundings of the Areskutan. Starting out at Hummelstugan and then weaving its way through the paths and up and down the Areskutan with the finishline on Åre Torget. Check out our portfolio for an impression.
It is Scandinavia’s largest bike park! With over 50km spread over 35 trails and over 800m vertical meters. A challenge can be found for both the experienced and the beginner MTB rider. Check out our portfolio for some images.
Hamperium Photography has just relocated from Amsterdam to Östersund. On the very day of our arrival in Östersund a big race meeting was scheduled to take place on the tracks of Östersund Travet. The weather had been a little bit of everything over the past days, so the track proved to be a challenge for both horse and (wo)men.
Åre Uphill Race
It had been a while but this weekend the uphill race was back! With both modern day race cars and vintage Porsches and Saabs scaling the hills it sure made for a spectacle! Check out our portfolio for a quick impression.
It sure was a warm weekend for the Dutch National Championships Track and Field. Held in the majestic Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam a great number of national top athletes came to the start as this event served as a great warm-up for the EC in Switzerland.
What an awesome event to see the NZ7s train so close to home! Although home for only a few more days it was totally wicked to see the Kiwis prepare for the Commonwealth Games in Scotland. The All Blacks arrived on 16 July and were received with great honour. From the Ambassador of New Zealand to a member of the Dutch cabinet and ofcourse all the local celebs, they were all there to watch the first haka on Castricum soil. Many more were to follow. In the training and the training matches the squad made playing rugby look easy. The Castricum rugby boys and a mixed Dutch sevens team did give their all, but where generously beaten by the All Blacks. We will be rooting for this great team to gain their 5th consecutive title at the Commonwealth Games! In the meantime, check out our pics here.
Transavia Grandslam Beachvolleybal Scheveningen
Being one of only 2 tournaments in the world with a million dollars in prize money, there was a great international turnout at the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour 2014: Transavia Grandslam Beachvolleybal in Scheveningen. It was another succesful tournament for Taiana Lima with new partner Fernanda Alves to lead Brazil to their 5th consecutive women’s gold medal in as many FIVB World Tour events on Scheveningen beach. Definately worth checking out our pictures here.
It was a hot day for the local tour of Obdam. With the big guns of the ladies cycling peloton preparing for La Tour, it was Danielle Lissenberg-Bekkering who won the Ronde van Obdam before Trieneke Fokkens and Kelly Markus. Don’t forget to check out our portfolio for more pics.
