Good initiative, Owen. Well done.

Good looking course too. Nothing quite so pleasureable as a nice 2:1 spin up ridgeline on a Sunday morning.

I will endeavor to procure a leave pass to support this. Hope I can make it.

Yes :) We have got permission to close a couple of tracks on sunday morning, so might as well use them wisely.

Well, we couldn't possibly expect you to give away your costumes prepared for the worlds, but there could well be something in it for those who make an effort. I think we'll adopt the no team lycra rule though.
