    I just found it an interesting comment from a rider who was arguably more successful in the days of the long format than he is now with the short format. And it wasn't around the competition day...

    I'm absolutely not denying that the rubbish weather and ground ruined to an extent what should have been a great day of xc. But nor can we reasonably expect the course to be rebuild in a day or two...
