Survey results are in

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to complete our recent survey. We were looking for feedback on how competitive the road and cross country series are percived. We asked for ratings on a sliding scale between them being percieved as recreational/casual events and being comptetitive. Both series were ranked as being more competitive than recreational with the road series being slightly moreso. The vast majority of responders agreed that the races should remain as they are rather than get more or less competitive. We also got alot of feeback how we organise the series the our association. Again, many thanks for all the input. We are always on the lookout for volunteers to help us out so please, if you are keen to help us improve please get in touch via our contact form.
