Irish photographer Victor Lucas brings us seven Uncle Sam gems from practice day at the Windham World Cup.

"So everybody seems to have made it to Windham in one piece, some of us being more closely probed by the rubber clad finger of the US Border staff than we would like, but with our virtue intact all the same. So far Windham is much the same as last year – warm, both muddy and dusty, midge ridden and with a ready supply of sugary high fat food, I really do like it." Victor Lucas
