Hey Shane,

I run Doublecross Cranks 180mm. Whiloe I am a personal fan of Profile Elite cranks, being the Team Manager of Doublecross I need to run their crans. that being said, I have had no trouble with these cranks which are lite and strong. The bearing system is excellent giving a good free spin even with the chain on. Doublecross are currently working on a new design for their cranks which will be out soon.

I truly believe that it is BMXA who is at fault here. Their ruling that you can't run a UCI round unless you have a 5m gate etc makes clubs push their tracks to ridiculous levels. I don't see the US running their UCI rounds on 5m gates, so where did BMXA get this from? It was funny that Bob from Doublecross in the US asked the question when he was watching the Aussies from Brisbane last year. His question was 'why are you guys riding on a supercross track for Nationals?'
The only way to get change is to lobby your clubs to fix it and bring everything back into harmony!!! LOL

ps I love ripping down a 5m gate so no I am not afraid of them. I just think they produce laziness with people relying on the hill rather than power out of the gate!

I jump the second straight at Melba and don't find it fun!!!! I crashed on it at the last ACT's and decided that I would not ride there again. If you don't jump the straight you have to be on the anchors and what is the point of that??

I love this video especially at 11.30 where the they say that they have never lost focus of why they were founded, to promote kids and fun!

This video was 2010, but I don't think that that philosophy has gone. In fact their tracks seem to be better and they are now more organised.

Modern track designs have been talked about for a while. In Oz after the worlds in Adelaide there was this thought process that everything needs to be deep and steep. This thought process I feel has been the contributing factor of people leaving the sport or moving from the clubs that have gone this way. The US continue to produce good fast tracks that cater for all levels of riding. The pros don't whinge they just race. Start hills are small and you don't see any 5m or above gates there except for Chula training centre, yet their riders consistantly do better on the world stage.
In Sydney, Macarthur has always catered for the majority of riders and as such has seen great success over the last few years with their open meeting sttracting an average of 500-600 entries. Each of the last few years has seen an exciting pro final where the lead has changed multiple times during the race. Membership continues to grow, the club is healthy and people like riding here. Penrith and Liverpool went the deep and steep way and ost members in the process. With this in mind Liverpool have just finished a deliberate toning down of their track and now people are raving about it.
It wassad to see the pics from Melba on the weekend with Ambulances lined up. This is not the way it should be.
