nice action shot Kaiser :wink:

Velo was singletrack master and when his brakes fecked he was off like a two bob rocket, nitrovelo as he is now known 8) .

Kaiser had no big ring action which can only be a good thing but nailed some really technical sections as well as some north shore fun and I managed to almost get into an altercation after nearly running down a whole family in the by now inevitable sprint back to the car with Kaiser (I won, snatching the honour back this month).

great place and my was there a lot of roots :shock:

Macretro coming at ya!

I went to Drumlanrig in 2007 - it was one of the best trail centres I've been to - some of the route was really nice and technical while quite natural.

It also appears to be all downhill somehow :D

know what you mean orange, the downhills are not to steep so you feel that they last alot longer- however I was aware of lots of uppy bits :roll:

tis a great place and really worth a visit but can imagine that in the rain the roots would be a real trial.
