Thanks again Horsepower and Milady ! :3some: You guys did a great job  :thumleft: :thumleft:

And great that I can keep my number "021". It won me a nice little stove and it has a nice "ring" to it :mwink: Also I was unbelievable nervous to take part in the skills challenge , and hummed and hawed about doing it , and then after eventually summonsing up the courage at the last minute I rode to the start line, the last of the 44 entrants.  I could hardly breathe . One of the helpers called my number out to Chris Hamman as oh two one ( 021) and Chris chirped " I don't want a dialling code I want a number " in that funny jokey way he has :D  it was so funny I started giggling and it broke my nerves and I could ride most of the course before getting nervous again a few meters before the finishing line. Next time I am going to ask Chris to run the course with me and tell me jokes while I ride :biggrin:

We as a team from HAMMAN also enjoyed the whole event and had loads of fun while setting up the two days as well as in teh evenings interacting with every body.

All and all a good event.

I have cleaned all my kit and started work again today, but I keep finding myself popping outside to stare at my bike.

I have not yet washed it, because then the trip will really be over.  Oh, well.  :-\

A BIG thank you to the organizers as well as all the support staff for a GREAT weekend!  :thumleft:
It was an absolute blast with the red route keeping us properly entertained everyday. (Big thumbs up for the work Danny and Generaal did)
I really enjoyed the social element of the event and met some new people as well as caught up with old friends.

Thanks to Chris and his team for the tremendous work they put into the Skills Challenge.
You guys really made us work hard and we saw some excellent riding!
Michiel has already challenged me to a rematch and I will be back next year to defend my title!  :biggrin:
However, looking at the final results he might need to practice a bit more before then.  >:D

No video?
I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

Unfortunately not ( that I know of) .  :-\ You will just have to come and join us next year for the event K, you will enjoy it  :thumleft:

Michiel and Altus (Dustdevil) has recorded some video during the skills challenge as well as of the red route on both days.
