Sunny in..Fort William? The team was in full attedance and greeted by a warm, dry and fast track. 

Junior (Jackson Frew) continues to impress us with his speed and charisma. Him in his natural habitat looking stoked and ready to go fast. 

Gutted. On his home track, Sambo was looking to turn it on here, despite looking great in practice, a flat tire in qualis would leave him out of the main show. 

Enduro killer Martin Maes has had some great runs here in Fort William in the past. This would be his first year competing in the elites - pushing for extra speed and only a second off the lead, he would go OTB on the final jump, leaving him with a broken wrist and a concussion. Heal up quick Martin!

This guy though. Wyn was looking and feeling great until a crash in practice sprained his knee. Not one to back down Wyn decided to take it easy and still managed to qualify then finish up a race run when many could not finish a lap at all. 

Weekend after weekend, the bulldog continues to move in the right direction. He would finish 11th in the Elite ranks. Nice work Brook! 

Jackson would continue to show his consistency and finish 3rd in Fort William in the Juniors field. Nice work Jackson!

Calm and Collected. This kid's got a great future ahead of him.

#longlivechainsaw. This one's for you Stevie. Over 70 riders participated in Steve Smith's Memorial run. His presence was felt every minute of the event, including a ceremonial run for Smith.

On to the next one. The team is off to Leogang for the next World Cup! See you this weekend!
