Amongst the Christmas hiatus things got a bit buried. One of which was the fact that the Muddymoles managed to get two of their photos published in the end of year back page advert in Singletrack magazine.
It seems that Orange have developed something of a tradition to thank their customers by publishing a selection of photos of people enjoying their bikes (not, I hasten to add, in the manner of a Scottish hostel guest). This year over 800 photos were apparantly submitted, three from the Muddymoles, two of which made the grade and got published in Singletrack.
There’s me on the Orange demo bike at the Cycleworks demo day in March when I realised an Orange Five was really the best choice for me, plus a shot of Dave ploughing his own furrow (oh dear) at Bedgebury in June when mud really should have been a long forgotten rumour.
The quirks of real world printing mean the shots are not particularly clear and they’re each only two centimetres square but at least we’re now published photographers. I know people who spend their whole time trying to get that accolade.
If you want further proof, track down a copy of the Dec 2007 Singletrack magazine. Best advice would be to order one from the website if you’re really keen.
