"Eire Syncro" 10th-19th June 2011 piccies

Postby syncropaddy » 11 Jun 2011, 20:31

Day one almost over so here are a few pics. The weather is holding up well and we have 7 French Syncro vans, Clive and Jenny, Syncropatrick, Syncroandy and Mattflint, Dave, Paul and myself. We have 3 forests totalling 4,000 acres of forest tracks in varying degrees of everything from fluffy to hardcore and some of the best views .....

Looking across to Wales from 380 meters up!

I think that your talking about Matt's van. The mane difference would be the big collie that rides around in the passenger seat. :)
