05-04-2016: So you shrugged off the horizontal rain

..you kept ahead of the breaking waves following you up stream
..you thought Hump Day was almost over
..and forgot for a moment that a dour damp Scotsman doesnahava sensa humour
…then turned the corner to be ‘burned’ by Big Dar himself.
5mins 30 into the video for another view of how they sort the boys from the men from the Lampkins!
Big Dars’ Burn – hearty attempts by Splatshop owner Chris Pearson, followed up by top Scott Gary MacDonald.
Needless to say only 13 of 261 riders reached the Ends cards.
05-05-2016: Day 4 and Wojo still climbing through the clouds for a rare glimpse of sunshine.
Meanwhile a certain ex World Champ (there are two in the event) rode clean all day to move into the lead with a 5 point margin.
Pressure building with 2 days and 60 sections left to ride.

05-07-2016:  It might look like he is playing for the camera, but in fact Brian just escaped a hole and step combo that took marks by the boot full!

05-08-2016: Not sure about handing in his score card ..might just head out for another loop.

05-08-2016: Fatigue setting in but getting the hang of those rocks …Red on the right?
Yikes. Only in Canada you say!
Brian finished a gruelling six days on 489 pts for 155th place out of 279 starters.
