I live on the Isle of Man, home to the mighty IOM End to End race. Link here
I've been in touch with the race organisers asking them about starting a class for Retro racers. The event started in 1996 so I've suggested that it should be open to bikes from 1995 or earlier. At first this seems quite simple but it opens up a can of worms. Should any potential class allow suspension ? fully sprung ? completely rigid ? how would the organisers check that bikes were compliant ? should modern components be allowed ? perhaps it could be an old frame with anything else fitted? etc etc etc
So what do you think ? What I'd like to do is gather peoples opinions and present them to the organisers. So please leave your thoughts and ideas. If there's enough interest in this the organisers might put on a separate class.
Let me know what you think
