Isn't that kinda what happens, anyway, by the natural path BOTM voting goes?
Not really, 59% of the vote was split between the other entrants.
Well I'm looking at what you suggested, and kinda inferring what goes on as the vote progresses.
At first, the field seems open, then towards the end, it only seems like it's the major players that get voted on.
I suppose if it was a 2 stage vote, those that initially may have "squandered"
their vote on entries that aren't going to make the top 3 break a sweat, may have another opportuinity to influence, say, the top 3, but I'm not entirely sure it would make a whole deal of difference.
When the voting is close, it's surely like just because the voting is close. And personally, I like a big list to look at and choose from. This is the first time my vote has actually been for a winning bike - actually it's probably the first time my vote has threatened the top 3. I quite like that - seeing some bikes that whilst they may not get anywhere near winning, there results show they got a few votes.
I'm just not convinced it's broke to warrant fixing. It was close this month, sometimes that's how it goes. And it would appear that a few were making comments that their chosen bike looked like it would get pipped - again, sometimes that's just how it goes.
