    Trail rides cancelled this season

    She's not looking good.

    Sand country cancelled now this morning Tussock Buster which for 2nd time is a blow.

    Only small sub 500 people rides for now. At least until another change reducing numbers.

    Poos!

    I'm registered for the Waiau ride on the 29th, decision being made today whether it goes ahead or not, I haven't done this one before so I hope It isn't

    Actually good point Spyda, hadn't considered that. Had considered it would be a bad time to be injured.

    Indeed. There are some awful stories from Spain and Italy about accident victims being unable to receive treatment or operations.

    Looks like WESS is stuffed, too. First 2 rounds, Portugal and Spain are canned. No doubt Erzberg will be, too.

    This is shite. All my winter pleasure has been cancelled.

    Can anyone recommend a good tyre for riding in wet clay?

    Do they clear in wet clay mixed with super glue? At low speeds in the trees.

    Two laps and one off was enough, couple of things I need to do to the IT200 to make it even better for the next one, that was just a test ride

    Already raised and moved the bars forward, need another chain to put the bigger rear sprocket on as it's a little over geared

    I'm actually more keen to try some of the Enduro sections on the IT200 than my RMX250

    I don’t do much real slow anymore or slick to be fair, they did need a bit of speed to clear from memory, more 2nd vs 1st.

    Was getting all excited over possible level 2 change a few days back. Esp as regional travel will be allowed.

    Until someone pointed out that it will be sub 100 people for outdoor events too. Some may run invite only club events but the economics of organising for a small number will be hard to justify.

    i think the bike parks are already opening. (moto central, flightpath, the sand put and taikorea all opened this weekend)

    the big trail rides may be some time off, but come late june or july hopefully they are up and running, with teh rules changing day by day at the moment it would be hard to the organisers to plan stuff,
