    Those drops into the streams were STEEP Shocked , especially with all the rocks waiting at the bottom.

    Mind you the bank just after the exit from the last stream was tricky by the end, slippery as hell.

    Well at least you all got to the start line, unlike me. Paid my club membership entry for the race all ready to go bar putting a new tire on and front pads. The bike was ready just a quick test ride...15mph the front caliper siezed due to a siezed hanger that did'nt release. Chucked me off and staright away said to my mate about 20 feet away from were I set off that if he could help me lift the bike up as I said that I've broken my foot badly, started the bike rode another 20 feet and same happened again! Lots of ice that Friday night on the foot and ankle in the hope I will still be able to race on the Sunday with a good tight boot! Saturday morning and I'n in bits and hit A&E at 8am. Result is a dislocated ankle and badly shattered bones in the foot and in plaster Sad , so gutted as I preped the bike and myself so well for the race. See the consultant on Monday for a probable operation. But I'm still hopefull that I'll be on the grid next month. Well done though to all the guys who took part it looked a great day, I'm going to have to work hard on my first race to make up for the loss of points. I'll BE BACK!! Very Happy Very Happy
