    Off out this weekend so will try and get some pics. As for Spring, more like winter. It hasn't stopped raining in a month, we are mostly under water - apparently there's a drought on WTF!!! and its freeeeeezing. Apart from that it's really spring like ;o)

    Just realised there was another Nicolai on the ride - actually it was the 'Stag's', i.e. this was a stag weekend/bucks party. How cool was that!





    River crossings became a bit of a theme for the weekend and the stag was pressured to do them all!



    It was definitely 'out there' in the wild:

    On the second day we rode up a 5km climb that would form the last descent of the day, thereby allowing us to scope out our lines. This section was soooo fast. You hit these rocky sections and basically you could pump a little and launch the whole thing. I had Strava running on my iphone on this ride and my V-Max down this was 27mph



    This was the posse



    Serious kit:



    Another river crossing this time piqued with Hubris. He didn't makeit!

    In southern France the absence of dust is called mud - I guess

    The Green Goblin (Momentus's Ion 18), yummy looking bike. He shredded it on its first ride, am sure he will post up some words on this ION 18.

    Also KB hitting the same jump. KB pulled off a jump that has alluded us some what on a trail called X-Isle.... A great ride...

    Excuse the blurry pic on the 3rd shot, really poor light and I didnt have a chance to whip the PnS into Manual mode

    Nice jump whafe, with the small helmet i would be really scared to hit that !
    A pic of the first race of the season, I caught too many trees on my way down to make a good result, but the BOS fork is really working well, I'm looking forward to the next races :-)
