Hi Sarah,

Im a little worried about the really strict rules RE: protection in the trials competition. I can understand the importance of wearing a helmet and perhaps shin pads, but I think the rule about having gloves and wrist guards is really un-nessasary. I don't ride with or own a set of gloves or wrist guards and don't intend on buying some just to use for BUC.
Do we really have to wear all that stuff on the list?

On another note, thanks for taking on the huge task of organising a BUC. I think the logo with an umbrella is very relevant to BUC, haha!

Thanks,
Edd

<fairly pointless post just to get me subscribed to the thread>

Thanks for the updates Sarah. BTW, the link under the logo isn't working (missed the quote after the URL)

I'm still trying to organise permission for us to hold a road race, but it's not looking hopeful at the moment. I've got one more chance (the local police), but if that fails then we'll just have to have a non-competetive road ride (and just happen to notice who gets back first )

Rob

The wearing of the listed pro is a condition of our insurance and is in the risk assessments of that event which affect the cost of first aid cover. So yes, you will need to wear* gloves or wrist guards as well as a lid and leg pro to compete in trials or street.

Sarah
You really have NO gloves... don't your hands get cold in winter? beg and borrow.

Other than shin protection in street I'm reasonably sure these conditions match the IUF rule book, just borrow your mum's gloves

Alternatively nearer the time PM me and you can borrow some wrist guards, if I bring a big wheel then I'd have them with me.

hey,
i am interested in going (whether i will be able to or not)
obviously nearer the time would it be possible for a full timetable of the times (roughly) and days in which the different events happen?

thanks :-)

by the way i agree that the logo is fitting

Usually, although it is the organiser's choice e.g geared 29er or 36" may be specified, instead of 'big wheel' if there is a time constraint.

I'd assume when the format is finalised the minimum practical wheel size will become obvious.
