    I'm not going to say that looks like fun, as it looks like lots of hard work to me.

    All your hard work over the last few years in the saddle is starting to pay off Rich, and I'm sure you'll claw your way up those standings over time.

    Nice work Rich , ya mad I tell ya , your brother has the right idea , no pedals, but then again dragging your back on the track maybe easier than Adams

    There is more mud on that Bike than my cruiser has seen its whole life The chap in the first pic looks very excited to be there
    Yeah mate that's my mate Clarkey, he is a bit of a character!

    The Giant dealer around the corner from work has a brand new Stance in the window - if I had the money I'd be sorely tempted after reading through your threads. Obviously no where near the level of your mad machine though!

    Please keep the photos and ride reports coming - I really enjoy them.

    Cheers Matto, there were a few Trances at the race. There a very capable bike mate.

    Cheers

    It's good getting a good result, 14th is my best so far but I really just enjoy riding different trails and catching up with blokes at each race. It's relaxed atmosphere too which suits me.

    The new bike is going awesome Jon, the slack head angle works a treat on the steep drops. I'm sure it saved my bacon more than once. You have to love the 160mm travel front and rear too!

    Cheers
