Is XC racing continuing to become a MTB niche? A number of opinions have been blogged on UKXCNews, some suggesting the situation isn’t as bad as it looks, but just in the last 4 years entries for the Gorrick Autumn Classic ‘Open’ category (raced at the weekend, great course even on a 26” hardtail, big thumbs up again to Gorrick) have dropped from 65 (2014) to just 12!! For a second year the National Series will only deviate from the eastern side of the country for a dip into Wales.
Most posts on the XC Racer forum are ‘for sale’ items.
I would post my thoughts on why this is, but it doesn’t look like too many people visit the site anymore….
