congrats girl! Proud of you!!  :thumleft: :thumleft:
Trials are survivable. We must keep our eternal perspective through the tough times.

We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed and broken. We are perplexed, but we donít give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.Ē (2 Cor. 4:8-9 NLT)

Congrats.

I can't understand the winning pic though.

Looking at the whole gallery there are definitely more deserving pics. Yours included.

'what a bike'..... does that sum up the feel of the event?

Have to agree, can't see why that photo won the  comp.

Well maybe because it is a photo of the newest bike and it offer great advertising to possible new buyers.  ::)
