Opinion: What's Next for Trade Shows?
We had great success this year bringing back the Malverns Classic festival. The trade wanted an event that had a bit of everything; racing, demos bikes, live music, stunt shows, kids zone, beer tent and the general cycling public along with the weekend warrior. With not too much trouble over 100 stands booked up! The consumer here in the UK is now spoilt for choice with the great offerings from Ard Rock, Tweed Love, Fort William WC and now the Malverns. The shop keepers can go along and see the brands, the rider gets informed up close and personal in a friendly and welcoming environment. And the bonus being a beer in your hand, winner!

Social Roundup: Lorraine Truong's Flip, Troy Brosnan's Close Call, & More
Just watched again, two riders stood in the track, the course tape is behind them and they are on the downside of the track, a very silly place to stand. Then further on down the course another rider stood inside the tape on the right-hand side, again the downside of the course. Fools.

Regards the Troy Brosnan incident: Captain Safety here again, imagine if Troy had crashed and suffered a career ending injury? We have already had a spectator killed at a MTB DH event in the UK and that is one too many. We all like to stand close to the action but spectator management needs to come into play. Courses need to be taped top to bottom, spectators and riders to only stand on the topside of the course and never on the outside of a corner. The clock is ticking before either a rider or spectator is seriously injured or killed due to lack of spectator management and my bet is it will happen at an enduro event where it is the wold west out there with some organisers. And can anyone explain to me why at UCi World Cups accredited media are allowed to stand in dedicated B-Zones that are recognised as areas of risk (run off area for riders) and therefore the public are excluded. Yet a media bib allows you to stand in there. Last time I looked they are not made of Kryptonite and do not create their own forcefield. Fingers crossed we don't see a tog wiped out live on Red Bull, keep your fingers crossed people!

Must Watch: Chris Akrigg's 'From There to Here' Full-Length Film
I've said it before and i'll say it again, the Worlds best MTB rider. Let me also say he rode the NPS/BDS in 2009 at Llangollen Death Woods track on a trail bike and won Masters 30-39. Then went to Fort William the same year and scored a third place. Legend.
