 never mind education (apparently its over rated anyway - ) what we want is entertainment ....

what about Takeshis Castle, total wipeout type gameshow in mtb style.

imagine it, you could have heats something like a librarian from Glasgow racing a social worker from Bristol in dual slalom and the winner then gets to attempt a dh track for the jackpot prize...

i reckon thats pure gold (tounge firmly in cheek!!!!)

 ahhh....well...so if you are going to go as far as crouching rider hidden gladiator maybe throw some special effects in there so the whips actually look like they are a brutal impact and would inflict harm... as is stands this was more of a ballet of sorts....good riding though....but take it to the next level for crying out loud.
