Recently we've been going out to Kellevie where Jon races his aging mountain bike (and aging body) on a set of purpose built mountain bike tracks. As there is often a gaggle of kids hanging around, the organisers have put on an impromptu kids race at the end of the day. Each one has been just a few laps around a 300m flat dirt course.
The before shot is before the starter noticed that Zali was a girl. The after shot is where she actually got to start from! Take note of the happy expression on her face. Of course by just looking at her rig, you can imagine what happened about 15 seconds after the start! Still she did well to hold onto 2nd last place, and Jett did even better not to be completely outraged that his big sister got a head start when he was the youngest in the field by almost 2 years! All's well that ended well though, as every competitor got a can of fizzy drink for finishing.
