The 2007 Conehead Cup kicked off in great style with 29 riders from around Australia making it a truly national event.
It was a tough course, with plenty of riders spraying cones everywhere, but Haggy Strom was able to pip Steve Daddow with his last run of the day, despite suffering from the flu.
After the slalom a wild variety of events took place - luge, hill bombing, and the crowd favourite - high jump.

As Chris M noted, our races are starting to look very pro. Not only do we have a timing system, we now have a portable start ramp courtesy of the BTS workshop.
And the times are getting closer. Congrats to Haggy for staying ahead of the pack, but that pack is getting very crowded and is slowly starting to catch up.

A tough course was set in anticipation of the steep and gnarly hill at Bangalow, the site of the upcoming National titles.
