So while I was waiting for the slower bikes , I walked around the veld where I was posted and found a baby baboon skull.
And came up with some funny pics.

Nicki, and Andy, nice meeting you guys and beautiful pics.

Bitter dissapointment for me, got highsided trying to blast through a stretch of mud/clay during qualifying, came down hard and broke a rib or two, really really dumb!! Managed to finish, but the next day was a different story.
I got up at 4am, tried to suck it up and get my kit on for the start, but it was impossible. 
Think if I had managed to get on the bike I would have been ok  :biggrin:. Next year I'll be there.
