I've just got back to NZ from my holiday in Europe, so I thought I'd post up some of my pics from the Fort William round of the 2009 World Cup.

Enjoy :)

Those Fujis are good though, My dad has a S7000. It was good back in its day for sure.
The shots came out nice.

Sweet shots man.

That Mondraker may look like a Sunday, but it topped the podium at Maribor

Was a tribute to two of his friends who have been diagnosed with breast cancer in the last year, his signed kit was auctioned to raise funds for breast cancer research.

So yeah I guess it means something to him.
