Written by Bryn   
Saturday, 31 August 2013 10:49

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!

Motorcyclist falling off bike

Congratulations to Per, the proud new owner of an ABR beanie and two ABR stickers!

There were some fantastic photos sent in this week, so if you'd like to see the competition Per was up against click 'Read more'.

Friday, 16 August 2013 19:55

Friday morning's weather set the tone for what we can expect over the weekend, heavy rain followed by some pretty pleasant temperatures and sunshine. In brief Saturday will be the worst day with heavy rain but by Sunday things will clear up a bit and there's a good chance you'll see some sun.

So, what do you need to know about the weather this weekend?

Blimey! It's that time of the week again when we pick one lucky winner for our Pic of the Week competition. Thank you to all ABRs who sent in their shots for consideration and (I know we may say this most weeks) we've been sent in some awesome shots and its been more difficult than ever to choose this week's winner.

After painstaking deliberation and a few disagreements in the office we can announce that this week's Pic of the Week winner is...Andrew Davies with this shot of his Yamaha XT660Z Tenere almost buried in snow. A bit of a contrast to the high temperatures we're currently experiencing!

ABR Pic of the Week

Congratulations to Andrew, the proud new owner of an ABR beanie (you'll need it in that snow!) and two ABR stickers!

We had such a hard time choosing the winner this week, so if you'd like to see the competition Andrew was up against click 'Read more'.
