Forres, Moray, Scotland

A couple of the under 12 competitors in procession descending a tricky hill with a rooty turn at the bottom.  the temptation is to go a little faster than your comfortable with. This guy survived but a few others continued through the gate in a straight line and had to paddle backward to the course losing a few places in the process.  The winner of the under 12 race won by a huge margin but he was bigger than most of the under 16 competitors.
