Frome Cobble Wobble 2010 – Aspiring Photographer Wanted for 17.09.2010, Frome
This September, Red Bull is supporting what can arguably be described as the UK’s take on the Tour de France – Frome’s Cobble Wobble.

Red Bull is looking for an aspiring photographer to come along and capture all of the mayhem, as and when it happens. Up for the challenge?
