It's that time again when we pick one lucky winner for our Pic of the Week competition. Thank you to all ABRs who sent in their photos for consideration and, as always, it has been a difficult task to pick a winner!

We have, however, managed to narrow it down to one photo and we think you'll agree with our choice. This week's ABR Pic of the Week winner is...Per Wassberg with this spectacular shot of a rider taking a bit of a tumble during a water crossing. Incredible timing with the shot, we just hope they were OK and you put the camera down to help them pick up the bike!
