Enduro des Merveilles

Loic Bruni, junior world champ, tearing through SS3!

Enduro up in Tende with the team and friends. Great laugh, 3 long stages, quite technical but mostly just high speed fun. A small bit of trouble with directions for me as I got lost. Good news, I wasnt the only one! Ended up 55th on the day, nothing too amazing, but well happy nonetheless.

Start of the final descent.

Top guys chatting. Nicolai, Bruni, Vergier and Cure, not sure any of them is even 20 years old yet they are pretty much household names in France.

Regular line, not the fastest...
A bit of an outside line there! He is about 2m off the track. 

Amaury, all style!

Trefle Vesubien 2012

I was too tired to write this one up at the time which is a shame, as it was my favourite race of the year as far as the race tracks went. There a bit of an issue with the timing of the liaison stages, I arrived 5 minutes before my starts, but many arrived just in time or late. The stages were absolutely epic, as good as last year even though they found/made 3 new stages for this version. 3 man starts with my team mates was good fun, and finished in a little village with tons of people roaring in the streets, amazing! Ended up 37th too which I was delighted about!
