I must say David was fortunate. After seeing his film home "Home Ground" I asked if Michael & David if they would be interested in joining us in Tankwa and maybe like to film some footage there. Once there they were hooked, it has been a pleasure to take them around to specific spots also very interesting to witness how they operate.
In this case light was changing & Michael wanting to film David riding away, due to time he did not do a test run therefore the fence caught him out. IMO the diamond netting saved him if only wires it could have been worse. This was Day 1, Day 2 David made an unusual mistake loosing it with a massive off on a trail also lucky to get up from that one  - tuff guy !

Cant wait for the final product - will post it when Michael releases it.
