First I'd like to say a BIG thanks to all the organizers for a fantastic day out 8)

It was worth the traveling/early start and even sitting in the back of Elpedo's dustbin for four hours :lol:

As always the standard of old bikes was superb and a bit of a surprise for me to win BOTR :shock: 8)

Heres some pics and a link the the rest Here

Thoroughly enjoyed the ride and some nice shots up there, even the wife likes some of me :)

I told her I was showing the little kids how to ride the jumps ;)

Got a bit knackered by the end, need to get fitter been putting on weight damn Wii Fit and it weight tracking..

Also got the bike rebuilt in time and nice to be back out on the Altitude again, still rides better than the others and with the shorter forks it was just like the old days and the old MAGs tracked fine and dandy through the twisty turny bits.


Anyone got a list of who turned up (pref with some pics as I've forgotten some of you already :lol:)

15/16 total wasn't it ?
