I flew up to Seattle from Burbank and Mark from Bones Over Metal picked me up and we were off to Port Angeles. When I was waiting on the curb, I realized I left my seat at home in the stand... so I rode Thursday with a 'custom' seat. It was only like $20 to send overnight with fedex, so my dad shipped it and I got it the next morning. Of course I would leave my seat collar in the hotel room, so I stole mark's during my practice (it was actually with my tools at the race, but I couldn't find it). :lighten:

Each day, I took photos of Cat 1/ Pro practice, qualifying and then finals on the last day. On saturday, my camera started to go dumb.....really dumb. I'd click the shutter once and it would go like 10 times. I got so pissed off trying to shoot. I even gave up and was going to end up sending only mobile photos to sicklines. Eventually on Sunday, I figured out how to work around the issue... (Take a shot, turn off, turn on, and then I could view the last shot and/or take another before I repeated the process).

Nice photos Pat. I believe the guy you have as Lars is actually Ken Faubert. I recognize the kit and bike. But the number plate doesn't match.

^ Then what do you think is up with his number?

My white's look fine to me. I guess in the last, it's a bit hot on his back...but bringing the exposure down would make the rest dark all for that, which I don't mind.

Thanks for the comments!!

Climbing around in those trees to get pictures seems to have paid off.
At first when I saw you climbing up there I was thinking "WTF is that kid doing?" I noticed a camera in hand and figured it out. Nice job!
