The track is at a town called Daolasa, I’m staying 6km up the road in a town called Male (with a silent “Fe”), it’s a lovely old town , with loads of cafes and squares (not boffins, I mean the cobble stone squares what people sit in), anyway the trials mob have taken over all these little squares with their various hoppitty sections, looks real neat sandwiched in between the old buildings.

This is the World Champs mascot, not quite sure what he is, rat, beaver, squirrel, otter or stoat, possibly a weasel. Tell you what I’ll ask tomorrow, but whoever writes in to Billy@dirtmag (put World Champs Fluffy Thing as the subject) with the correct answer will win the little bugger. (I’ll buy one tomorrow)
