      World Championships Germany                           2011...                                                                                                           2011...

 In November 2011, one of my dreams came true!!!.

Team GB...

With the help of SDAS we compeated in the Dryland World Championships, held in Borken Germany.

Team GB, partners and Dogs...

With 491 competitors it was the biggest sleddog event held anywhere, which made it all the more special!!!.

Martin and Nick...

Our good friend Nick Stone was traveling with us and was competing in the 2 dog Purebred Scooter class with two of his dogs Nico and Max. Max was one of our litter that we let go, so we were hoping he would do well. I was competing in the 4 dog Purebred class with Trinity and Magic in lead and Hex and Woody in wheel.

Martin and Woody...

 

 

 

Woody being Maxs litter mate and Hex being there dad. Although Nick and myself didnt have all the training on the dogs we would have liked, being early in our season and suffering with high temps, but all the dogs did us proud and gave there all once again.

      Our Team... LEAD : Magic & Trinity   WHEEL : Hex & Woody

 My team picking up the Bronze medal in there class and Nick being just off the podium in 4th place, an amazing acheivement considering it was one of the biggest classes and he hadnt even got on the scooter until the morning of the race. The whole of team GB were in the top 10 of there relative classes, quiet an amazing feet in my opinion!!!...

A very proud Martin with his medal ...

 It was a great adventure and we met some amazing people and amazing dogs, one of the highlights of our trip has to be meeting the great Rudi Rupertz and his lovely wife Marlies, who made us very welcome letting us see there fantastic home and Kennels... Rudi even took Nick and myself out with his teams training, cant thank them enough for all there hospitality.

 Martin, Nick and The Great Rudi and Marlies Rupertz...

I would also like to thank Deb, Nick, SDAS and the whole of team GB for all there help. And one last big thankyou to Trinity, Magic, Hex and Woody, the real atheletes whom never cease to amaze me!!!...

                                   The Whole of Team GB...

                  WHAT A TRIP!!!
