    Where you live? (suburb, city, state)
    Dunedin, Sth Island, NZ

    How often do you ride?
    Once or twice a week for recreation usually with a few buddies or group, commute for fitness (when family and weather allows)

    Style of riding?
    Really like epic rides on natural terrain, somewhere new; Central Otago is fantastic for that sort of thing. Otherwise purpose-built trails are fine.

    occupation?
    IT (keeps wolf from door, and shiny bits on bikes)

    bike you own?
    Reign and XTC

    bike you aspire to own
    none currently

    fave trail?
    Wanaka, Queenstown, Naseby, Rotorua - all have great trails. So many other places I haven't ridden, so little time...

    fave city... why? (controversial!)
    The weather in Dunedin is the worst aspect, best feature is the quality of the schools and university - it's a great place to raise kids. (Siblings are caught between locally zoned crap public schools and $20,000 pa private schools in other cities).


    other sports?
    Oddly, given the erratic weather, Dunedin has some of the best surfing in the country, if you can put up with the cold. Beach & point breaks that face every which way...

    Been here a while ...

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state)
    Heidelberg, Melb, Vic

    How often do you ride?
    3 Days Commuting, 1 night/arvo + 1 or 2 weekend MTB rides

    Style of riding?
    Trail/XC + a bit of the ubiquitous AM

    Occupation?
    Software Engineer unhappy with life behind desk in front of computer doing meaningless work, but at least it pays mortgage and MTB upgradeitis, and allows for 'work from home' days (i.e. extra riding days)

    Bike you own?
    Scott Genius MC-50 (the bottom of the range non-carbon Genius cos that's all I could afford) w Rockshox Revelation dual-air U-Turn.
    Planned upgrades: Shimano XT Wheelset, brakes & shifting gear. Shimano SLX 2 ring Crankset (when it's released), Easton Carbon bars & maybe post.





    In action at the '07 Scott 24hr (sunset lap - getting cold)



    Bike you aspire to own?
    Don't mind the look of them Ibis Mojo's - an Orange one of those would be sweet.

    Fave trail?
    Yarra River to Pink Ribbon & back
    Forrest Trails
    Buller DH

    Fave city... why? (controversial!)
    Melbourne - I escaped here from Canberra a decade ago, never to look back.

    Other sports?

    Thanks. Given the squillion photos of Port Hills you've taken, I can guess yours is there for riding too - though I did notice your Handjob made it into the porn section (that just sounds wrong). And yeah, the photo guys at the Scott 24hr were fantastic - they're called Sportograf and they're from Europe somewhere (http://www.sportograf.de). They were always so encouraging and chatty as you rode past - about 20 of them I think all round the course. Nearly every photo I got made me look like I'm some elite athlete in a magazine spread. Very impressive. Here are another few shots of their's I purchased (very good prices too):





    And my favourite, one of 2 long exposure shots of the mountain they took (this one shorter). Check out the Milky Way behind the clouds. Bare it may have been - Mt Stromlo - but it made for some mighty impressive photos at night.

    Yeah My rides see alot of dirt.

    Those photos are simply the best i've seen in a long time. Fantastic! I'm so over images of riders front on... *yawn* Now these images tell a story about a culture- bloody amazing.

    Thanks for sharing.
