PMBA Enduro Series launches it's 2023 dates
@Madmanuk: I do try and leave most venues with improved trail facilities. Hence spending a month before each event fixing issues and building new trails. You grievance is mainly with Grizedale, which has been hardest of all the venues to get trail work authorised. However that is changing, and hopefully we can do some maintenance. You are still ignoring all that we have done, and concentrating on a few issues that have been there. Overall at Gisburn, Llangollen & Kirroughtree over the past decade we have been of overall positivity on the trail network to the users that come after us. Grizedale I'd like to argue neutral - but there is some leeway in that for personal views I agree. And without enduro's happening you may have found many wild trails closed. You just don't see the full picture, and frankly being a bit of an arse about it. Show me anyone, anyone at all that has had permission to build and maintain Wild trails at Grizedale since 2015 - I'll give you a clue, its a short list 1) PMBA Enduro 2) Nobody.

PMBA Enduro Series launches it's 2023 dates
@fatduke: many thanks for understanding. Its a fair bit of cash before even doing anything, or adding to the equipment. Bought a trailer this year as the borrowed one fell apart, that was a fair chunk of unexpected expense.

PMBA Enduro Series launches it's 2023 dates
@Madmanuk: Well you will be pleased to know I'm £25k in debt after covid issues 20/21, Graythwaite cancelled last year for storms. However right now I'm half way through a month of volunteer trail building at Gisburn forest - and doing all the admin for the series launch and website updates from my camper at night. Check out the Gisburn Forest social media for updates - is giving up a month of my time for a big Gisburn repair enough? What about an entire new trail section at Llangollen in 2020 - only took me 6 weeks. Grizedale trails created for, or by PMBA Enduro. Golden Shower, Blind mice. And hard enough to get permission to even maintain trails at Grizedale in the past. However we have got permission to do some maintaince at Grizedale before the event. I do try and be trail tinkering Feb-November every year, mainly for the events, and wherever I can get permission to do it. As I say, thats currently Hully Gully at Gisburn Forest :)

Video & Race Report: PMBA Season finale at Kirroughtree
Can I ask in what way? Getting specific negative feedback is the only way to improve so I'm genuinely asking in what way it fell short. Thank you.

Race Report: PMBA & BNES Enduro Series Llangollen
@jeza08: its a tough balance, between "ride with your mates" and seeding. Start marshals should absolutely not be allowing big gaps when there is a Q - that's the incentive, start early have to pass more people, start later with faster people and more chance of a clear run. It either has to be this way. or fully seeded with start and transition times which I really want to avoid, even for the national rounds. We did do this when we ran the 1st BEMBA National Enduro Champs in 2017, and not something I want to repeat.
