There will be 2 raffle draws made. One at the Under 9/12 prize presentation and the other after the Main race prize presentation. Please take a raffle ticket when you sign-on, its free and open to anyone that raced, Marshaled and or helped out. Prize draws over £4000
Preparation for the 2020 series is already underway. I have developed a RFID chip timing system used in conjunction with your number boards. There will also be a app for both iphone and Android with living timing, results will be ready 10 seconds after you cross the line (subject to final confirmation). I will be testing it at the final round to collect live data for testing ready for next year (but not using it for results). There is also a new video capture for back-up purposes, this will be in use for all the categories. New course features are also planned hopefully featuring a new bridge you will be able to go over and under.
Dual Slalom - This year will be based in the woods, if you can ride the pallet jump you will have no issues. Its turned into more of a short track, XC, Dual Slalom thingy. i.e. 2 rider will go on either track, then swap tracks and the fastest combined time will go through to the next round. Its free to enter with limited spaces, https://www.traversbikes.com/store.html#!/Travers-MTB-Series-2019/c/15746940/offset=0&sort=addedTimeDesc There will be an Under 9 and 12 version, this will just be a bit of fun and we will run after the prize presentation, also free, no need to enter this.
Some frustrating news: I have had my van broken into and all of the course equipment used to prepare the track has been stolen. Thanks to Lesley Pearce for the lend of the Leaf Blower the race can go ahead.
