Thanks to all the riders who took part in today’s event - round 2 of the Gloworm Lights Winter MTB Series - it was awesome to see so many people out in the forest.
Unfortunately, the day didn’t run as smoothly as we would have liked and we are disappointed this event didn’t meet our high standards due to deliberate course tampering, predominantly on the short course. This is very concerning as course tampering affects the safety of riders and their event experience.
We would like to apologise to those adversely affected - please contact us if this happened to you. Also, if anyone spotted people course tampering at all, please report this to us.
Our thorough Nduro Events process of pre-race course checking usually mitigates any issues, however despite our best efforts in the last 48 hours, disruption still occurred come race time as you will see in the timeline below.
The mountain biking community is amazing at coming together to discourage this type of activity, so we’d appreciate everyone keeping an eye out for and reporting this type of behaviour if possible.
We apologise once again, as our aim is for everyone to have the ultimate mountain bike event experience!
Bring on Round 3 of the series - we can’t wait to see you there.
