Day 3 of downhill practice saw the same dusty conditions and track deterioration as before.  However with a big crowd and no clock,  riders could relax and put on a show for the spectators.

As the proverbial goes, we’re not here to…

There was a couple of very close riders through the rock garden today. Pierron being chased down by Gee
The Men’s shed BBQ started and was doing a roaring trade from its oasis right near alien tree.

Katie Lawlor had a big smash, breaking her collarbone. Healing vibes.

Finn Iles looking pinned as usual, the Aussies will do well to beat him in Junior men’s, but here’s hoping.
Bruni about to take a rest stop and have a good look at the rock garden.
