Been a bit tied up getting into watching the olympics over the last couple of weeks! How good was it seeing BMX racing in there, seems like it got a good response with Hugh Porter getter over excited in the commentary box and the rest of the BBC presenters looking gobsmacked. I wasn't sure that I would but when it came to it I set my alarm and watched it live at 2 am! I have to admit I had goose bumps when the first quarter final was on the gate, this moment has been a long time coming. The track looked awesome and made the both the men's and women's racing look close, fast and exciting. I had an each way bet on Mike Day and Sfiso which made it even more interesting! Mike Day was looking unstoppable, but when he was left with an outside gate in the final I didn't think he'd get the win, though he did out smooth everyone on the 2nd straight I thought he was going to get Strombergs in the 2nd turn. Sfiso looked to have the edge on strommbergs down the first straight but being stuck outside him he was pushed up the first turn. Still, Day finished 2nd so I made a profit, woo!!

I've not been up to anything too intersting. Training, watching the olympics, and having my weekly fun at the trails! Got a bunch more pics. Tucker took the ones of me, I took the rest. From Top-bottom, L-R, L-R etc! Joey, Matt, Joey, Tucker, Ross, Tucker, Joey, and fnally, some rollers we built.

French Roadtrip 08 footage

A few weeks back DC sent me a 20 min DVD he made of the French trip 08. It brought a big smile to my face and reminded me what a great week it was. Luckily no footage of the half built tracks in the dark though haha. Bit too long to share on the web, so here's an edit of the footage, cut down to a bitesize 2 & 1/2 mins! Tres Bien!
