Tweedlove Bike Festival Announces Details for 2019 Event
£10 is a great price to enter a festival. The average price for a festival entry in the UK is own excess of £100 so this is a tenth of the price. Neil and his team do a great job and deserve plenty of credit and support. Just add sunshine and you have the perfect event!

How much is it to register. I am not sure but it used to be around 3k euros per team, it may well be more??

Spotted on Social: 2 Wild Saves From Valparaiso
Rider, spectator and media/marshal safety should be paramount at every race. In the Bernardo video he takes a pole dance around that pole. There were obviously a number of riders hitting that pole, hence the padding that magically appears in the Wynn video. What is more interesting is that the media guy filming (looking down the course) with his back to the action is stood infront of that post. The post that was identified as a risk (crash zone) as the organisers padded the pole. So why let media or anyone else for that matter stand in front of it? Plus if you watch the POV winning run from 2:40-2:45, perhaps the fastest parts of the course, marshals/media stood in the course inches from the rider. On a really good note, spectator safety was good with crowd barriers, good to see that in place.
