Lying overall in 2nd place behind the Poms (110 vs 114) and 2 points ahead of Nordic team who is on 108pts. 

Let's go full taps on the next 'Shot of the Day', it obviously helps a lot in the scoring.

According to Jacko todays pic (still to be added) will be:

"SA team member with SA flag on his sleeve giving water to little girl through fence"


J, as I have it this is only every second day, so the next one will only be up Saturday.

Of is ek dom? Hulle se immers "every other day" en as jy na die "previous shot of the day" kyk is daar 2 datums op elke thumbnail. ???

Went with Roger (team SA) on a trip up to Malawi on my Capo a few years back. He does things on a bike that I could not do with my BMX in school days.

He is a good and soft spoken man. I am not a BM fan but proud to support Team SA.

Respect and good luck!

As Jacko said, look for the photo of the guy with the white t-shirt giving water to a little girl.

Jacko just called me and we had a lekker discussion. Apparently us Seffricans have been "cought out" and a lot of the other teams are now also using their "networks" in their home contries, that being social nettting, forums et al. He says that it is unfortunate, but it is not really down to the abilities of the teams in the competition anymore, but how many votes they get for their pics. (Good stunt by BMW to get more awareness!).

Therefore, as we can assume that these mentioned social networks are much bigger and more organised in Europe and the States, we will have to battle very hard to continue to win.

According to Koos, ZAR is 4 point behind the leaders, UK (I think) and Scandinavia is only 4 points behind us in third. It is a VERY close race then, so please peeps, email, facebook, forum and do whatever else you have to to get our votes up!!!

HSK, mebby change your heading to something more enticing for the prospective reader, and sommer gooi shouting IN CAPITAL LETTERS!

Select "Shot of the Day"
Click on the photo
At the bottom will be a "button" that displays - "My shot of the Day" - click

The scores per each photo will then display when the mouse hovers over the pictures.
I know nothing but I can not prove it,,,,,

Keep it up guys.
SA have a CONSIDERABLE lead!!!
The conundrum that is life...
You have to be absolutely smashed to have the guts to attempt it,
But perfectly sober to achieve any success!

I got 3 in but personally think the Italians took the best one.

Patriotism has its price!
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)
