Well considering there were no trails there 3 months ago we are pretty happy with the way Wasing (way-zing) worked out. Thanks to Ian and Lisa from the estate, the southern xc team for helping us put it together, Garry Taylor for finding the place and our crew for making the last minute changes and finding a demo/relay route.

It was great to have Tracy Moseley gusting for the Xcracer.com team in the relay and although the Joolze Dymond allstars were pushing it was still two out of two for the team...will anyone be able to challenge that at round 3. Well done to shred/certini for grabbing 3rd on the line...we need more teams though to make this work. Tracy enjoyed herself so much she came back and raced (and won) the sport race on Sunday and wouldn't have been out of place in the elite race.

Standouts for me were Niall grabbing second in experts, Matt's fab 10th in masters (i spent the whole afternoon telling everyone he wouldn't hold on to it....sorry Matt) and Maddie grabbing her first British series podium. Competition is deep in every race and the youth turnout is now 60 riders which is a big leap from a few years ago. People seemed to really enjoy the course and it took the rain thrown at it easily. We hope to go back there next year and there is scope for more course development.

With getting home from Dalby only 8 days before leaving for Wasing things were a bit tight and thanks to everyone who helped with our last minute request for marshals.

2 weeks now and then it's off to Margam Paul, Gareth and Lee have some surprises in store there....

The Wasing estate seem pretty happy but please bear in mind it is a corporate venue with lots of weddings and shotting and this will never be a permanent riding venue...so keep out....please
