We were lucky enough to watch the Cross Country event at the Olympics - WOW!! It was truly awesome and so incredible to be so close up to the fences. The course was very twisty and hilly and we managed to walk the whole course before we saw the first British rider jump the first fence. The fences were beautifully made and all had a British theme - this one is called the Royal Herb Garden.
And this fence was the East End fruit barrow - complete with real fruit!!
The atmosphere was brilliant and London seems to have come alive with the Olympics - there was happy people everywhere which is very unlike any normal trips into London!! A real once in a lifetime experience and one to treasure. Icing on the cake was that the British team got the silver medal - GO TEAM GB!!!
