I'd definitely think about coming again, but having done the 2011 event, I never saw the results. I emailed the organisers but had no reply. Not sure if I want to do a race when I cannot see how I did.

Sorry but these are things riders look at when doing events.

this year I've purchased a Ipad app which will give race updates, results, times etc as soon as the race is over, however to make it easier for us on the day it would be great to have entries before the race day, so we can load info into the Race system database.........and if you would like the results emailed then a email address will be required :)
I hope this clears up the mistake made regarding the posting of results.
