Finally caught up, and the Rata photos can be found on the club photos page ( https://sites.google.com/site/watrcnz/photos ) as they upload. You'll know the set is complete when I update the cover photo.
The heavy overcast on the day forced me to increase the ISO setting. The photos are consequently a little grainier than I prefer, and the stunning landscapes are a bit fuzzy and soft edged.
Also my later start meant I missed the first few riders out and didn't see much of them on the course - sorry guys - if we use that course in future I now have the shortcuts sussed and there will be no escape ;-)
The final batch of photos from Bulls (Marton School Fundraiser) taken by Andrea should go up next week. I'm just waiting on them to turn up in the post.
