 Finaly there is some coverage of this event, really suprised at the lack of it, also surprised this is not a worldwide Pinkbike home page event rather than just UK users, after all some of the World cups best were racing , the IXS cup had less known riders and had a ton of coverage.

 is that really what that little flag means? or does it mean it is coverage of a British event?
  • + 3
 Interestingly last year's US national champs was worldwide coverage.

 @raleighVoid Yeah Pinkbike launched it a while back, allows users in their countries to view relevant media. That's why we sometimes see smaller race event news like the mini enduro series, not exactly worldwide homepage news but interesting enough for the average Pinkbike user in the UK that might want to have a go at a race.

 Watching that back brought back nightmares.. Rachel summed the track up best I thought. Never been at inners where so many people just went for 4 runs, maybe 5 on the Saturday.
At least there was a rave on all Saturday night somewhere in town and the generators started at 0600!
The 2 mile road ride was mint for each run, was real fair that some were getting lifts along it...
After how amazing the Scottish champs track was at Glencoe, it was going to be pretty tough for nationals to come close.
.... next..... Smile

 I'm suprised at how little mention there has been on pinkbike about those proto v-10's. I thought the 650b haters would have imploded as "their last true 26" hero team" went to the big size.
The fact that the syndicate team are all tall probably just means that 650b bikes fit them pretty well. However i'll let the conspiracy theorists go off on one on the subject instead.

 wtf that's stupid that's what made that bike

 Wtf are you on about??

 I think he means that the 26 inch wheels is what made the bike special
  • + 0
 well i dont get that point at all. Was it any less special when all the other bikes had 26" wheels?
  • - 3
 Well then you are a freak
  • - 1
 you dident need to call me a freak and leogang proved it dident need 27.5 inch wheels
  • - 1
 Except if Loic hadnt crashed he would have won?


who was on 27.5 wheels?
  • - 1
 there is no possible way of nowing loic wod have won
  • + 5
 Apart from split times... Although keeping your ride together is a fundamental part of racing that Loic lacked that day.
  • - 1
 maybe ratboy won is because his bike is easyer to corner than loics 650b
  • - 1
 lol it wasnt exactly a tight twisty track Just forget about it, I cba to argue with a retard
  • + 4
 Maybe if loic was running 26 inch he would have held that corner.
  • - 1
 ^^^ hahaha
  • + 2
 So was the 650b answer a guess? Or is that what they were on them for? They looked like older shaped frames.
  • + 1
 @Rolley, it was on Dirt a few days ago that they were on 650 proto bikes. The Syndicate team were reluctant to say anything but you could see the 650 on the tyres.
  • + 2
 @Fix-the-spade, cheers pal. Wondered when they would be on them. Doesn't fuss me too much what the pro's are riding. It's not like I can afford a £3000 V10 frame anyway. My 26 will do for now.

By the way, why has my question and your answer been neg propped?? Does that mean someone thinks my question was daft and your answer is wrong?? No bother.

This was a great vid and loving that Ratboy and SPS are on the top step again.
  • + 2
 Agree with that. I think there is too much emphasis on wheel size - it's the rider that makes the difference. It's Ratboy's time.
  • + 1
 LOL @ Katys cork popping too early.

Good effort on third though lass. Maybe get another Unit23 sesh at some point eh ;-)
  • + 1
 Ratboy is really on it this year and it's great to see I'm as national champion. Know he need a world title
  • + 2
 They are Prototyes
  • + 1
 ratboy yes!
