This is Carl van Roon looking through the power machine at me. Pity it's out of focus but I quite like it.

I tried a few weird ideas out photographing the guys doing their breaks but nothing worked for me. I really wanted a fist coming through the boards taken from behind the boards and we chatted about how you could maybe do this without smashing the camera into little pieces. In the end I think the traditional approach is best for Power... but you never know, there's always another day.

Here are the rest of the power pick of the pix below. I'm under strict instructions not to give anything away to the competition who may be watching our posts other than a message that the Juggernaut is still with us and is as powerful as ever.
