Sani2c 2008

Lorna, Ruth, Jimmy, Nick and Richard all did the Subaru Sani2c this year. I went along as supporter with Pippa and Lorna's mom. Here are a couple of photos.

You can find most of my photos on here.


Day 1 (all day 1 photos)

A cool day for the start and everyone was looking keen and excited at the start.

Day 2 (all day 2 photos)

Day 2 started off very foggy. Supporters had to leave before the cyclists. We headed off to the concrete strip. This is a strip of concrete down a steep incline. Saw one nasty fall there due to a rider attempting a wheelie on the strip and slipping in the moist conditions. That was his race over...

We spotted got Lorna & Ruth just after a water stop with some pretty dirty faces.

The day was getting long and hot. Riders needed support halfway:

Luckily there was a shower further on.

We caught up with them later as they were entering a forest.

Everyone was very happy at the finish. It went to Ruth's head a bit too...
