God, I remember this. That was the year when the kids were climbing up the sides of the marquee where the bar was? And everyone inside "stormed the bar" which involved everyone legging it towards the fridges at the end and kicking them in. From memory the riot police were called with dogs and everything?
Ahh memories.... So, as someone else said, does it still happen or was it stopped after that year?

I know the event was cancelled the following year but have no idea if they started doing them again.

my memories from that wknd..

richard vickory climbing the main pole, naked in the big marqee tent.

bottle riot!

taking out 3 spectators on my ridged kona, in the coors dual slalom, & getting beat by some dude on an AMP.

peeling used condoms form the back seat of my mates escort estate car.

waking up on the sunday, tent fully surrounded by police tape, having my camera taken from me, then walking to the reg. tent realisng what had happened.

alex pinkleton RIP. (i think that was his name)

they did run a couple more years at the malverns then stopped. One of the big 24 hour races uses the same course I believe now, mountain mayhem maybe?
