Well Woodhill was awesome depsite the rain the tracks were mean , shitloads of grip in the corners even when they were full of water, we were pretty much the only people who were there all day...hahahahaha

Hit Big Mumma, finally, just had a look and went for it, very very nice jump.....even manage the "look" sideways for the camera...Noice.
Got both Hude and Sorin to hit the Cookie 2 jump and drop , loving it , good one guys..
Josh obviously had not ridden for 8 months but after a run on Raceface and some sessioning on down hill into jump at the top of Big Mumma ( right next to the North shore which ends in the teeter totter) he was straight into it , awesome effort Josh

I managed to break my chain, Josh broke his shifter, Sorin found out after 10 mins of rinfing that his brake calipers were loose, and Hudes bike made a farting noise every time he compressed the bike under load..... hahahaha otherwise a mint trip all in all..hoping to get some vid's and photos up once we can get them out of Josh's Camera

and got the ride in , in the rain, hahahaha hopefully in the next couple of days for photos, josh is taking the camera up to HN to get them onto disk, cause he didnt bring his cables

:thumbsup: seemed to have issuees with the camera not focusing on the moving object making the rider blur, so we got some movies and hopefully be able to take good photos out of those

Quinsta on Big Mumma!! Finally the proof!!!! :p :p

I have never had that blurry problem before, I found out that the ISO sensitivity could have been abit higher and it would have been clearer, although doing this lessons the quality of the picture. The low light didn't help.... :hmmm:

blow me peter....... yeah nah the drop up the haki prepared me well, just had a look at it and then hammered it. the sand was wet as in the berms so it held nicely, was struggling to get into the berm thou, dunno if it was the speed or just where i was looking but out of 10 jumps i went off the side 8 of them hahahaha......easy peasy was trying to get Sorin to do it , both him and paul were where i was at last time. Paul said fuk should have just gone into it instead of sussing it out so many times
