Jaroslav Kulhavy charging downhill to try and catch up to the lead bunch after an inopportune sidewall cut in the last 15km of Stage 4. Maximum respect to him and Sauser for making it back to 4th for the day, and to my pilot Schalk for flying the chopper in reverse alongside all of this allowing me to snap this image at 1/80th.

I’ve spent most of the time in the shuttle to get around. This shots was taken out of the car while we tried to get ahead of the field right after the start.

What a day of racing. Punctures and other technical issues littered the leading pack throughout the stage. Scott came through with 1st and 2nd team in men's with the ‘senior’ team allowing the ‘junior’ team the honour of the day. Scott won the mixed category yet again.

Judging by the survey results people on this site are weird.
