Flying along and the stick felt a little heavy. :twisted:

With the trees in the background giving a sense of scale, it looks like the invasion of a monster of some sort :D

Icing huh? Didn't think it would be possible :o

I'm a bit disappointed. I thought team riders have their crew of personal assistants 24/7 at their disposal, including a de-icing specialist, a physio, a rigger / packer, a cameraman and catering. Is this not true?

You know, I thought the same thing! Turns out not to be the case. :(

Snowkiters are the "D" listers in the Peter Lynn stable I think.

Very impressed with how well the 24m flew with the added weight. Every time I stopped to de-ice it was a hell of a lot of ice.
