Points: 0

So, Saturday the 25th of June, was a thrilling day for me. Not only did I see some amazing sights, I was able to capture them all on camera. And with me behind a camera - I will miss NOTHING. So be prepared to see some people experiencing.....

Not quite their finest moments.......

However, between all the award-winning tumbles and sprawls, there was no denying it was an adventurous, thrilling and exhilirating day! There were SO many photo's so I have chosen some of my favourite (The rest will be up tomorrow at the Club Meeting - So be there!)

Enjoy the photo's ;)

After making it up the famous "First dune", Trevor made a grand entrance by falling off his bike at the top. 

Did we take a little tumble Trevor?

Funniest moment - As Cecil arrived in camp all we heard was "No, not now!" and this photo shows the result that followed! 

Another tumble for Cecil

OOPS!

Although I'm biased I think you did an amazing job on Saturday - not much got past you and that camera! Are you sure that was me taking a tumble - it could have been Nats???????Wink

Awesome pics Megan, again. Laughing

But why are there no pictures of me on my "new" bike. That's all I've been waiting for all day.Cool

Sian, Nats doesn't close her eyes like that when she falls. And there is the small matter of the large number 9 number 9 number 9 on the front and no Bryan Adams in sight.Innocent

Thanks for the amazing photo's Megan, you really got some great action shots.

And Sian unless I was wearing your helmet, goggles and was riding your bike with the 9 on the front, it must have been you.. ..    Cool
