Cracking weekend at ae for my first ever sda!! Came 53rd with 2:41.02 so pretty happy with that! Defo up for inners! Great to meet so many happy folk that speak to you and help you out! Track was brilliant and only had one major crash into a tree in the woods after the right hander where i got running sweet and took my eyes off the track on the straight haha! My hand hit a tree, its puffed up, broused like mad and wrist is wore to move! Many folk say its broke or cracked but i managed both races runs with a painful hand after trying to shake it about for 2hrs up top probably looked strange from everyone elses point of view. Nice meeting a few of yous and probably met others who i dont realise i met off here! Race card 117, green voltage with single crowns and i wear specks if that helps identify myself! See yous at inners!!!

You did well for your first race, I was talking to you in the queue at the top whilst we were waiting for our runs. Was good to ride in nice weather for a change.

Yeah they do 1st round by board number then the other races are seeded by your standing in the overall

Anyone ridden Braefoot in the last few months? Not been over in probably a couple of years, wondering if its even worth the trip. There were some big jumps being put in when I was last there, don't know if they ever got finished? I know its really not far from Edinburgh but I'm lazy and if I'm hopping on the train, I could just go across to Stirling and ride Cambusbarron instead

There's still plenty there to ride, however there has been some trouble with people vandalizing the trails. I've added you to a Braefoot facebook group dude so you can get up to date info.

Yeah thanks for that! Looks like it could be worthy of a train ride, shame about the big jumps though. Hopefully the vandals get caught and don't up their game otherwise it could get dangerous

We will catch them....and they will get their c#nts kicked! Meantime we are encouraging people to park away from woods i.e on road/carpark at Braefoot terminal...as to iradicate one theory why they might be getting wrecked!

Another great weekend at sda at inners! First time av been to inners but ill be back pretty soon! Came 59/74 with a time of 3:54, nice meeting another load of yous and also good to speak to others that were at ae! Defo up for riding the whole season and meeting even more folk! I have a green single crown voltage and had the number 117 if that rings any bells! Bring on Glencoe! I heard something about sailfoot/Moffat might not be happening and it might be moving to fort William! Any details on that?
