    I guess you're right, although I would have thought that given all riders have to sign a waiver it shouldn't really be an issue. I guess it only takes one to try, that would cause enough havoc.

    True, end of the day its bike racing. I do think Trimble needs to come out with a formal statement about it, events to suppress some of the rumours that have arisen. I feel that without that the incidents could end up being damaging to the reputation of the race and series, its success I feel has largely come from riders that sign up and race. Not the corporate sponsorship deals, would be interested to know what the rational was to not allowing more than two team mates per qualifying group. Seems like a weird decision to me!

    Looking again, if the Moto had stalled or whatever, he would have been far enough ahead just about to freewheel it to the left allowing more if not all to pass on the right where the race line was.

    Reading quite a few complaints from riders on the various social media platforms, only 2 riders per teams allowed in each qualifying group and Aldo Ilesic allegedly blocking off the group enabling Colin Strickland to build a massive gap. Also plenty of rumours flying round about the moto incident, some claiming sabotage... Can understand people may not be keen of big sponsors like Specialized getting involved but surely no one would sabotage a bike putting all the riders safety at risk? I don't know, either way. I hope the riders that went down are alright!

    Most likely the Angering dude, can't remember his name. He heads out a couple of times a week to do some mega millage, did he have tats and a beard?

    edit - just seem how old this is, my bad!

    Brighton scene seems so quiet these days

    I like TB14's but i've always had a soft spot for Open Pro's, I build with them all the time at work too so I guess its a no brainer.
