Agreed, that's me entered solo. Can we have a retro side-race? Most number of laps on a retrobike.

If we were doing a retro side race I'd add a few sub rules as a full sus retro is hardly less able than many modern hardtails. I'd say your bike must be rigid or a hardtail with forks of 2" or less travel and canti braked. Otherwise your not really at any less of an advantage to the rest of the field.

Added points for full XC lycra look of yesteryear :lol:

I might aim to do each lap on a different bike.

Would be rude not to! Just need to check with the boss first.

On another note have we lost the calender? Theres quite alot going on in the planning stages by the looks of it but its quite hard to get an idea of whats happening as a whole.

I'll get the calendar updated tonight K, been slacking off my duties of late.

PS. It's in the Announcements section, easy-ish to miss though, I assumed it was a sticky.

??????????????????

I dont get them at all, all that dosh for two funny shaped rings you have to shift the chain between by hand. I like wee bikes but I like cheap tech that works not bling that doesnae.

Interesting though !
