Did the marshal thing today, took a few photos and GoPro footage along the way.

Stunning day for riding, and a fun track to ride  :thumleft:

She pretty much took care of herself Buff  :thumleft:

I am really tired, should rather start racing this marshal thing is hard work  :biggrin:

Not complaining though, it was a really fun day.

He should have awesome photos, would love to see.

These were just taken with a Canon D20, nothing else will make it with me falling so often  :imaposer:

Nice pics, thanks for posting guys. Those jumps look quite big for an enduro!

How did your missus do Brett? Kudos to her for going without you around.

Garfield, I love this picture, it captures the spirit of racing

BB those jumps not part of the enduro, must have been MX race or practice.

Okay thanks. I thought it was a little bit weird.

They did have a part of the MX track as part of the race but nothing hectic.

From what I saw Brett's wife Cathy rode really well, she did two laps on a fairly tough course (lots of rutted sand) with very little assistance from marshals.
Also bear in mind everyone raced together which means there were a lot of serious, fast guys on the same track.  In some places it was quite tight.

Will edit and post video later in the week.

My missus loved it thanks Neil. She was obviously nervous as hell and she was riding on her new little CRF150R for the first time in hectic sand but she managed two laps and was a chuffed little chicken. After getting her confidence sorted her second lap was 45min quicker than her first (granted she stopped and helped a kid stuck in a bog hole) so it just goes to show how important it is to have faith in yourself and your equipment.
