It’s getting to that time of year when what’s going to happen next year gets sorted. In our case we won’t be able to put on an XC series in 2013.
Why is this? Essentially we need a large group to share the load and to make sure that we can safely hold events in one of the most challenging venues around. We are all volunteers and as such have many higher priorities which we have been compromising since 2009. Unfortunately in 2013 it’s clear that we need new people (at least 3 or 4) to commit their time and energy to keeping this going.
A final decision hasn’t been made but at the moment we will not have a 2013 series.
If you want to change that then you need to step forward. Ideally you need to be local, reliable, prepared to stick to commitments and enjoy making things happen.
It’s been great fun, very hard work, and I and the group are very proud of what we have done. The future is however in your hands.
See you on the trails.
