Yeah was cool weekend...
A few Wildogs sited - one sticking head out his 'kennel' ... another sluiping through the campsite wiff showoff slinky boxers (does your Mom know about this exhibitionist tendency?)  ;D

I must say that Steytlerville looks very different from when I arrived there for the EC Bash...very dry :biggrin: :biggrin:

I must agree with MH

I looooove those Hops, Skips and Jumps.... :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

Not to mention that River bed.... :mwink: :mwink:

Nice riding guys...

After a tasty brekie at the Royal in Steytleville,I discovered that my front tyre was flat....again! ???
Tried a can of puncture repair - squat, I`ve yet to see the bloody stuff actually do the job!
Put a new tube in and pinched it! Removed,patched and re-installed....pinched again!!!
Eventually I got a tube from Noxious and we got that in ever so gently!
2 hours later we were off to Groot-rivier poort which will always be a favourite!
