I talked to Duncan Mackenzie after the race and he said that if he gets enough emails from Downhillers complaining about the track he can go to the council or who ever mantains tha tracks and put forward a partition so they will do somthing about some deacent tracks.
His email is -gomarlborough@gmail.com
The more emails he gets the more likely the council will do somthing bout the tracks so you Marlborough boys can have a deacent place to ride.

The race format of having the three events is an old concept going back to when MTB started out and you only had one bike. Its outdated because XC and DH have evolved due to specialist bike set ups being designed and the DH courses being designed to suit DH specific bikes.

What do you guys think about having 2 separate events, one you call the SISS XC championships where you race XC, Hillclimb and "DH" with the DH course being the old school type suitable for XC bikes. Then have another new event you call the SISS DH Championships run along the same lines as the Island Cup races or Nationals, ie with a days practice and then race day with morning practice and then seeding and race runs?


Hear Hear! Good on that man!

And throw a trials comp in for extra measure, all on the same bike of course....


Fucking oth, sounds good to me
