Fun times...

It was a great welcome back ride last night with the Fatties. The pace was hot the dust was thick and just about everyone was there to test their fitness losses and gains from the Christmas period.
Randall showing off his new kit. It didn't look this shinny for long.


I was having a ball. Holding wheels and pushing both body and machine. Unfortunately I pushed to the point of no return as I attempted an overtaking move on James Dickey at 40km/h in westerfolds park. The sandy corner didn't agree with what I was attempting and after a long slide I was back up and riding in three seconds flat.

Even this journey on my butt couldn't dampen my mood. So much so I ended up accompanying Mr Ash Thomas home after he got a pit too excited and left all his energy on the trails leaving him with nothing to ride home with.
This was the outcome of my slid. The worse part is the corked calf. Oh well, hadn't planned another ride till Sunday anyway. Thank Ash for the top photo.

It was a late night. I stayed up till about 12:30 because I was still buzzing and with the grazes I knew I would have hard time getting to sleep.

I'm just glad it wasn't me that put it down.... for a change.

The image of your legs amuses me though, the dust was crazy.
