I got to see you on the podium like I said I would. Dad and Ivan too. A bit far away as you can see so my little camera struggled on max zoom but that's as close as the public could get for that view.
I see you looking down with some concern. Have you just spotted a fuel leak or were you chasing something???
Hmmm, I thought I'd got away with that. I dropped my finishers medal and it went rolling off down the ramp
My dad had to chase after it, not that's got gravel rash along with the bike and me
Thanks everyone, it's going to take me a while to catch up and make any significant posts but I'll get around to it I promise.
Thanks for all your offers of beer too but as most of my closest riding friends will know I don't drink much. I love to eat though ;-)
Catch ya soon folks.
