MBUK/Silverfish/RaceFace DH Factor part two...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>

It's been a pretty hectic week so far - the weather's been OK, but the hard graft has been done out on the hill by the contestants of the DH factor comp and Raceface sponsored riders Scott Beaumont and Robert Leslie John Warner- you wouldn't believe that watching riders can be hard work, but the standard of the riders has been so high. Definitely not a bad thing...

There's been a couple of armed forces entrants amongst the midst- check out the home made helmet of the nutter Gareth, who drove 16hrs to compete...


Check this shot of a monster off-camber turn. If the weather does what it says it will, this turn will be carnage...


Everyone here has lots to say about the NPS at the moment- there's certainly speculation- here's what Rob Warner had to say...

"The track for this weekend's looking good- maybe a bit wide open in the bottom but otherwise OK." However, Si Paton, the new NPS organiser appears to have shot himself in the foot with his comments to team managers about this weekend- slaggin' myself and Dirty Berte off.
It appears Si has started an unneccesary war with casualties forecasted to be huge...

Professional would have been a good way to start this series but he's already dropped to our level of idiocy and I'm sure you know by insulting us you will have to pay the price! There's a lot riding on this weekend in the reinvented, rejuvenated National Point Series - so let's hope it lives up to all the expectations.

DH and its riders in this country deserve a worthy National Series- so please deliver"
