Racing / Where are all the Pro riders in QLD??
« on: September 02, 2014, 01:37:59 PM »
I keep hearing about the need to make tracks to train the next generation of riders, but of the 2 most recent events in SEQ being the Sleeman SX event in late July where no male or female pro riders turned up out of 140+ riders, and Redlands on the weekend where there were 230 entries, only 8 male pro riders, and there were 12 female pro riders??

Are tracks wasting time, resources and money on pro sections?

Or are the pro's only interested in racing when there is money available?

Racing / Number plate number size?
« on: November 16, 2013, 04:59:06 PM »
OK I thought this would be a simple one to find out, alas not so.
I have heard that the numbers on our plates are supposed to be 100mm high, but have looked at the BMXA and UCI rules alike but for the life of me can't see it stated anywhere.  Yes I may have missed it, does anyone have the rules that categorically show the minimum number size?
Or perhaps there is now no longer a minimum size, I say this because this years worlds cruiser plates numbers are a mere 63mm high?

Any help appreciated

Racing / Open Days Trophies Vs Cash

Interested in peoples thoughts.  In regards to cash prizes or trophies at open days, what are your preferences and why?

Racing / Pre nom for events
« on: October 06, 2013, 03:39:11 PM »
What are people's views on the pre nom events, I often travel for work and occasionally can't commit too far out, I know the pre nom events are a great indicator for the clubs to cater for the crowd on the day.
Next weekend there is a race meet in Gympie that is pre nom, I didn't as I was to be in Perth until Saturday, my trip has changed and I will now be back on Friday evening but noms have closed.

No real big deal as I could do with the break, but how many riders and catering are similarly clubs missing out?

Racing / Are their too many classes after 30yrs old?
« on: September 27, 2013, 10:26:20 PM »
Simple one I often think about, are their too many classes when racing at club days?

How good would it be to have 30-39, 40-49 and 50+ ?

Would create larger classes, more competition and personally I reckon all-round better racing

Racing / A Pro and AA Pro in QLD
« on: September 27, 2013, 10:23:00 PM »
Many have mentioned it recently, what are the chances of having both in QLD, would give the newer pro riders a chance of racing in Pro classes and being competitive and when they earn the $$ they move upto the AA Pro ranks?

You could even get the faster older guys racing the new 14yr old pros and creating great racing!

Racing / Road clip shoes for racing
« on: September 26, 2013, 04:17:06 PM »
I have been pondering this for quite a while, and after seeing several of the QLD pros who run road pedals unclip and then take an eternity to clip back in and their race is all but done!

Why are they used, surely the advantages that are achieved are quickly outweighed by problematic clipping back in?

Any thoughts?
