So there it is 1/3rd of the season done and some great venues still to race!

Extra nice yesterday to have some of the team from MSG Central along to continue learning the ropes. Given that Lee Valley is one of the most challenging venues that we use it was a good place to learn. Incidentally, we would love to see some of our Eastern friends slipping over to support our new Central venture. I was checking out the first venue last week and itโ€™s looking great so get Black Park Slough June 3rd in the diary.

Also especially pleased with the improved parking arrangements which we felt worked extremely well, and also the improved security arrangements which contributed to zero issues on the day. It is a primary concern to ensure our customers safety so a very high priority for us. A simple word of warning at the gate and there were 400 sets of eyes watching out for each other. So a big well done for a crime free day to all of you.

It looked very poorly marshalled to me when I went past on Sunday. You had no Marshalls going into the bottle neck near the car park. You had dog walkers walking on to that narrow section, then letting their dog off the lead unchallenged by Marshalls. You had a group of what look like marshalls in hi-viz vests, all sat on the highest point of the track, play fighting and hurling rocks. Young riders riding the taped off black run sections not wearing helmets, then trying to climb over fences on to other tracks. Iโ€™m half inclined to raise a complaint with Lee Valley and the BCF after what I saw yesterday.

We had a little think before heading up from North Somerset but it was 100% worth it. A super course in a great and different setting to the norm and very well organised. Hope you have it next year๐Ÿคž

All looking good for tomorrow and course running well. Letโ€™s hope the weather continues as we are all in t-shirts today which is a long way from the layer upon layer we were wearing for the Henham setup! ... See MoreSee Less

UFO alert !!!

There is an unrecognised orange:yellow glow in the sky above Lee Valley Velo Park today. We are advised that it may either be a) incoming from the Middle East or b) the first real signs of spring arriving.

Sartorial elegance therefore will be a straight choice between an NBC suit or shorts today ....!

Apparently Sunday has added significance as itโ€™s the 50th MSG event since Matt and I took over running the series from Active Essex in 2012. Somehow seems like more !๐Ÿ˜‰ ... See MoreSee Less

Mud Sweat and Gears - Eastern XC Series added 2 new photos.

Having spent the morning digging drainage channels over at Lake Phoenix, it occurs to me that some of you folks out there in MTB land might appreciate the opportunity to race the All weather (DRY) trails at Lee Valley this weekend.
If so youโ€™ve got until midnight tonite to enter at low online pre-entry prices.
There will be entry on the day, but it does cost more so donโ€™t delay enter today!
