I don't know what it could be but people crashed into me three times during the day. For the first one I performed a perfect 'stoppie' :shock: The second was a Letmetalktomark SPD moment and the third time Letmetalktomark had a strange magnetic attraction to my bike.

The first crash on the fire road was rather bizzare. I was a few bike lengths behind TedC when his chain started jumping about and he slowed. Having none existant 40 year old drum brakes i decided to start braking only for the bloke on the modern disc braked Giant to run into the back of me. I looked around to see him fall and then several other riders ride in slowmotion into him. There was a delay as his disc had hit the rear mech of my bike and taken a chunk out of it, which needed filing down. Luckily DSP had his manicure kit handy and they were soon on the way.

after editing out the blurred stuff, the shots of nothing in between riders and the just plain crap shots i'm down to about 140 or so!! :D "batch" photography is good but christ does it take forever to sort out!

i have "enhanced' and cropped some shots to try and improve them, hope you like!
