    Getting gear dry?

    Thread Starter: HEsch

    I've got Goretex riding gear, but, on days like Sunday (absolutely torrential rain - they ended up closing the Waikato Expressway at Mercer due to flooding), it still gets wet through . Simply too much moisture. I have a 2 hour drive every weekend, so I can't pick my riding time to suit the...

      Some technical infringements in one new class which were apparently sorted before they went out on track

      That's because we're a class that always sticks to the rules

      Indeed, but they got off on the grass at that last start but the CTAS coverage wasn't close enough to show us exactly what happened, and they had a good comeback from that - well done boys .

      His favourite action? What about you Kick were you happy with the weekend?

      I watched a bit of the CTAS coverage and that was pretty good compared to previous efforts including the post race interviews.
