She's pretty sore but nothings broken so not as bad as it could have been.

She's well enough to write a report on her blog- http://www.ritaracing.blogspot.com/

For what it's worth, U23 women at XC had to either race Elite or Senior this year, and all the Masters Women grades were lumped into one grade also.

I considered going up but couldn't justify the cost... I have been on the lookout for photos too!!!

I am going to the Coronet Peak round of the SI DH champs though and will have a whole lot of photos for sale at my usual website...

It's www.nzsnaps.com and I have just added paypal $NZD digital image sales in response to a lot of people asking for it (as opposed to having to use the $USD cart which cost me more as well!).

If I get a reasonable number of sales from the Coronet Peak round I'll also go up to Nelson... I was going to shoot the NZ Champs as well, but unfortunately I have a wedding on that weekend :-(

I'm still open to companies / teams paying for me to focus on their riders :-)

Cheers - N
