Nice one mate, but I'm sure those vids have been sped up - as those pulls felt longer at the time :laughing

Nice one Pete! Very happy someone got some videos as I didn't think anyone had taken any. I was really impressed with the team this year. It wasn't the heaviest team we've ever had, but it certainly felt the most fluid. I didn't study everyone, but I was much happier with my own technique. Much lower overall body position and my feet were in time with Gaz's pretty much all the time. In fact saying that the whole team moved like a millipede. Pretty perfect against some good teams. Well done all! Fantastic work! :th:

Looking forward to our training between now and the next one. Those pulls were very short. I didn't really feel like we were struggling at any time. There again we're a frickin solid team now with some experienced members. :yahoo:

I agree Jez.

Being into my slalom waterskiing has given me an unusual make-up. Strangely i felt like i was using all the same muscles for ToW. That said - the ToW is the only 'sport' i have found that gives me as much of a buzz as skiing. I am really looking forward to this next year, though i ache today, the inner smile those triumphs have given me is worth it.

It was waiting and feeling sick to the stomach, wanting to throw up. walking up to the rope papping yourself, feeling the adrenalin coursing through your blood, heart pumping out of your chest. Hearing the "PUULLLLLL" and putting every effort into not giving your ground away, cranking those legs straight, feeling the muscular burn and the EPIC elation of winning.

I too am on for a beasting by the ToW ledge that is Gaz! Bring it on! :D

Parade boots for me next year and need to work on digging my feet into the ground on edge.

Jez, Dan totaly agree, we were on it. Felt so good on the rope, there was no struggling. Even that end we gave that team because we felt sorry for them was hard work.....to loose, 3 of us could have beaten them :laughing

Justin, nowhere near as long as the final last year.

Great stuff, heres to next year, and the build up training and BBQ's at mine. :th:

They can change the Light weight, but wont change the fact we will smash it. :cool1:
