Love this quad shot, still turning away from the crowd !

People dont realise that sometimes these horrible things are at the end of a hectic loop and you are tired!

alot of these bikes take a hammering on the jumps... wowoooo

I don't think, the suspension is what it is designed to do, absorb the landing while maitaining the balance of the bike and controling the rebound.  ;D



Excellent photography SB  :thumleft:

Fantastic pics.  :3some: Now we see what stress those bikes go through. Flat landing really pounds the suspension.
Looks like plenty entrants had the "Pass me my clean boxers :P" moment.
