Watched the trial bikes in action aswell. They guys were awesome. It's unbelievable some of the obstacles that they get over (check out my entry in the comp). Downhill definately my fav though. I must admit the size of my lenses was nothing compared to some of the pro's that were there Ah well size doesn't matter and all that
He he...I missed out on getting a photo of the new zealand competitor who came off his bike and ripped his 'suit' at the back end . He came jumping into the arena with his builders bum on show to great applause from the crowd (the bbc failed to show it though )
No 6 for me, not only because the rider is South African but also because the structure gives a feeling of how high the rider is jumping, as well as framing him nicely.
Did the guy in 7 fall when landing? He seems to be in the process of bailing out!
No falls into the main arena, they happened further up the course. Couple of big off's from the GB guys...ouch!! Had to laugh though, I took a picture of a guy racing through the trees and looked at the camera to review...only to hear a big thump and oooh aaah behind me as the guy went tumbling off.
