Thanks for all the kind words!, I'm happy that some of the magic I experienced was able to to reach you.

Yes there was some protour riders on the island. I passed Aru and 4-5 of his teammembers, some EF-Drapac riders and a couple of Astana guys. I spent one night at the Paredores hotel on Teide where I ran into Moscon, Diego Rosa, Boom, Roglic, Mohoric, Possovivo, Moreno and a few others. I was there with my 7 year old soon who likes to ride Mtb and he was all exited to haunt autographs. They all treated him nicely and while we were eating dinner he made a drawing for Lars Boom and Primoz Roglic each who were also dinning in the restaurant. They were super nice to him asking him about his mtb-riding and when they left the restaurant they came over to wish him a good night. He was so proud and still is.
Now THAT is cool!

20-30cm? Geoff, even by my wimpy standards that's not very far! ;)

Mopho, one of your pics looks just like where they shot the Brandon Semenuk one-take segment from UnReal. Beautiful place :thumbup:

From me, a few from the Vale of Avalon the other day. Some nice skies inbetween the hail showers :P

Same gray skies this weekend, but the temperatures way lower, a couple below zero to be exact...

Yeah, I believe that was shot down in Cambria, about 90 miles south, but much of coastal range looks like that this time of year. It's funny, I had just watched that again the other day.
