I have been voting - but only 1 vote each time.

This whole setup has a k@k smell to it though :-[ - the points should NEVER count for the overall score.

There should be separate competition(s) for:

Best Photo
Spirit Award
Best Off
etc, etc, etc
I know nothing but I can not prove it,,,,,

Back from the Trophy.  Just to clarify the photo thing......
Each team consists of 3 riders and a journalist.  The competition riding which is scored ("special stages") is done by the team, and the organisers brought the photo contest in just to make the journo's contribution also count a little for the team.  The weighting is quite low, but still.  All 4 the team members are on stage for the awards.  It was very positively received and contested by the press boys and teams.
SA won the first one too - well done to Jacko and all who voted!

The BMW Motorrad GS Trophy 2010 has reached its conclusion and despite very strong final day challenges, Team UK has emerged as the winner. The day involved a trials riding special test at the Country Trax estate (riding a BMW R 1200 GS), followed by a 300km return journey to Johannesburg where the results of the final photo competition were later announced. The trial involved sections containing a seesaw, tree logs and iron beams. Team South Africa won, while Team Nordic also outpointed Team UK for the runner-up. This reversed the points table, putting Team South Africa in the lead by one point with just the photo competition results to be decided. With scores of 152 to 151 Team UK regained the lead and took the GS Trophy title. Team Nordic were third just two points behind South Africa.

nice one SA...

So we came second with a one point difference?  Well done boys.
