Whatever happens to keep kids in the sport in my opinion it needs to start with the grass roots of the sport because without the up and coming kids there will be no pro riders in years to come who is going to go and watch the sport and hopefully get their kids involved then. just my 2c worth.
there is definately a problem in Vic. There are more kids than ever leaving, including some experienced/skilled riders. it will be more evident in years to come at elite level. I'm guessing that a change/changes that have happened in the last few years have influenced the drop out rate. best identify the problem , fix the problem and monitor the outcome to reverse the trend.
your right on the money there Hepp alot of very talented riders lost here in Vic!!!!
