    Wow, it's been a while since the last time I was here, looks like I have some catching up to do ;) Anyway, I have been out taking a bunch of pics myself, and here is a summary of my more recent outing :

    The Snowcross World Championships are held in northern Sweden every year, and this year quite a few riders from the USA came over to compete, including multiple X-Games winner Tucker Hibbert, who won the event, and Cory Davis, who came third.

    The weather was rubbish, -5C and snowing all day, no clue how the camera survived but it did ;)

    Here's a few pics, more available on my homepage, and C&C always welcome.

    Gary : thanks :) there were riders from Sweden, Norway, Finland, Italy, Iceland, Russia and the USA. I don't know how fast they were going to be honest, can try to find out. But maybe not that fast actually, because it's a very rough and technical track, lots of bumps and turns ...

    Msnowy : thanks :)

    mike90t09: Thanks :) The monster-mobile is Tucker Hibbert, multiple X-Games winner and now also Snowcross World Champion :)
