Saw a link to this site from Giant bikes website. Have really missed rallying after moving to America from England and spending weekend after weekend spectating and marshalling/safety radio on events exactly like this. These photos are awesome and I so want to see some rallying again but Florida doesn't have anything that I have seen so far. Again they are some really awesome photos.
