Packing for a flight… in the wind with sand flying around – fun fun!
We ran into two trouble-makers on our ride.
Too cold to swim, but nice to be at the beach nonetheless.
Winners are Grinners
James and Kylie went awesome. Wipe that grin off James!
Bec Hendo took out the women’s u23 XC in good form.
And then he shed a tear. Benny smiling even after an unlucky day.
Me Me Me
Maca dominated the XC and took a well deserved victory. Does green and gold clash with ginger?
XC Nationals start, moments before being taken out, along with my chain and rear wheel. Got going a couple of minutes later, only to hit the back of the field and spend all day in traffic with a slipping chain all race. What an awesome day.
Weekend at Barry’s
Nationals at Adelaide went terribly. Suprisingly good form, shockingly bad luck. Try again next year…
We all know bogans and Commondoors go hand in hand. No exception in Adelaide.
Benny and his damn ice baths. He went for a raft down the river just after this.
Our 3-seater for the weekend. Gun driver Pete D in control all the way.
We all kicked back at Canberra airport, waiting until we got the VIP call-up. It never came and we noticed they were closing the plane doors, then ran up. Luckily the nice people at Virgin re-opened for us.
Astrochem are playing again next month. Check it out for some funky tunes!
Vince Flanagan out-does himself in style and riding. He won his Cyclo-X race in a wintery Hyogo that morning.
Cutting through snow
He never rests. Yu munching up the snow in a world cup in Belgium.
Motoji drives it along, just for the crowd.
A paparazzi shot of the aftermath of my capsizing the Hendo’s tinny. All was saved, aside from a Leatherman and a battery. Oh, and maybe people’s trust in my boating ability.
10 days in this place on the water – what more could one want!
Leanne’s postcard photo.
We have a winner
Benny trying to take the credit for Kate’s big’n.
The Don – the new fishing guru.
The storm was coming, but the fun continued on the doughnut.
Wakeboarding once every 2 years isn’t a good idea if you want to be able to walk (let alone ride) the following week.
Maca about to hit the wake. Getting in was the main challenge.
Bec was obviously loving the wakeboarding.
Gourmet prawn pizzas care of R & J. A highlight.
A beer and 2 wines, just the beginning.
Wood Stacking Tournament
It wasn’t my fault!
Capsizing the boat wasn’t due to lack of adherance to safety or a shortage of skill. It was pure physics and equipment failure.
No lives lost, no injuries. Just a lost battery and pocket knife, waterlogged phone, and a few wet items.
Lucky some kind citizens came to the rescue to drain our boat.
A quick engine drain and they’re off!
