The Joys


Packing for a flight… in the wind with sand flying around – fun fun!

Trouble

We ran into two trouble-makers on our ride.

TOP

Beach Time

Too cold to swim, but nice to be at the beach nonetheless.

TOP

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.

TOP

All Teary

And then he shed a tear. Benny smiling even after an unlucky day.

TOP

Me Me Me

Maca dominated the XC and took a well deserved victory. Does green and gold clash with ginger?

TOP

Great Day!

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…

TOP

Bogan Central

We all know bogans and Commondoors go hand in hand. No exception in Adelaide.

TOP

Ice Man

Benny and his damn ice baths. He went for a raft down the river just after this.

TOP

The Van

Our 3-seater for the weekend. Gun driver Pete D in control all the way.

TOP

Too Casual

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.

TOP

Astrochem Live

Astrochem are playing again next month. Check it out for some funky tunes!

TOP

Pure Style

Vince Flanagan out-does himself in style and riding. He won his Cyclo-X race in a wintery Hyogo that morning.

TOP

Cutting through snow

He never rests. Yu munching up the snow in a world cup in Belgium.

TOP

Kakoii Na!

Motoji drives it along, just for the crowd.

TOP

Man overboard

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.

TOP

The Palace

10 days in this place on the water – what more could one want!

TOP

So Romantic

Leanne’s postcard photo.

TOP

We have a winner

Benny trying to take the credit for Kate’s big’n.

TOP

Hooked

The Don – the new fishing guru.

TOP

Pure Style

Yeah yeah!

TOP

Coming In

The storm was coming, but the fun continued on the doughnut.

TOP

Self-inflicted soreness

Wakeboarding once every 2 years isn’t a good idea if you want to be able to walk (let alone ride) the following week.

TOP

Bob

Maca about to hit the wake. Getting in was the main challenge.

TOP

Smiley

Bec was obviously loving the wakeboarding.

TOP

GourMET

Gourmet prawn pizzas care of R & J. A highlight.

TOP

Alco

A beer and 2 wines, just the beginning.

TOP

Wood Stacking Tournament

Serious business.

TOP

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.

TOP

No Losses

No lives lost, no injuries. Just a lost battery and pocket knife, waterlogged phone, and a few wet items.

TOP

Rescue

Lucky some kind citizens came to the rescue to drain our boat.

TOP

Off Again!

A quick engine drain and they’re off!
