Was sitting in second place at the previous timing stage, less than a second behind Goldstone. Insanely skilled young dude. Both are. Propain saw that years ago, and they all seem to have a great relationship. Attwil and Kerr are meant to be the flagship riders of the team, but it’s the MS boys every time. I still think LMS (probably both) have bigger futures in Enduro. Would sure suck to be them.

edit. Attwil isn’t factory team.
Better edit again; Kerr is Pivot (team manager, in fact) not Propain.

Snowshoe is going to be another cracker I reckon...

do we hope for more rain to make the track fast but slick, or to dry up completely. Can be a debacle when its sunny on race day and the track is slow and sticky for early riders and dries up for the latter ones.

Pretty crazy watching ben cathro's run, which according to the finish clock was at 1140am, and then seeing laurie Greenland's, filmed at 1129am!

Ben is way faster than any of us, but laurie is on another level!

More rain for fair racing's sake.

Even if it stopped raining now, they would need a day or two of 35°C to dry out that peanut butter slop
