Comments from the masses.(email us)

Just a quick line from the team from Nottingham (Billy's buffoons). we really enjoyed the day out and the organisation was plain to see. Thankfully it was slightly easier than last year. 135km - 27 sections. Once again thanks a lot for a good event and good day out.  John, Patrick & Richard. Another splendid day, put on by splendid people.

The new route sheets o.k. Think I may bring my roadbike for the morning next year and my trialsbike for the afternoon, some of the sections didn't appear to be typical Wyegate sections but very testing. A big thank you to all the officials and observers. Hopefully Caerphilly has LDT on august 20th, all welcome.(no wheelies away from start!!!! you know who you are) Seems like the welsh can ride and play rugby!!! NIBBS
Don't forget with us being on the border, half of our club members are welsh so you can't wind us up that easily Nibbs.

Great Wyegate, thank everyone for there help. (Never did find "reset trip") - Steve Venn
Point Taken Steve. We used a separate box for reset as we thought it was confusing zeroing the total but now realise we didn't need to. Doh!

Hi All, We've just updated our website with the Wyegate photos as we've been out shooting track days. Come and see our Gallery.. Nigel at www.edpphoto.com

Just a quick compliment. The route book was magnificent, only one slight hesitation approaching the Mork Hill sections. Next year I may try the GPS - Norman Blakemore
That's good news. We did have the option this year for some riders to upload a GPS version but there are many problems to overcome with that too. It would be interesting to know what you riders would like. Send us a wish list if you like.

Thanks for a really good day out, it was my third ldt and third attempt at trials type things. It has made me want to do more. Thanks to all the observers and those who put in all the hard work behind the scenes getting access and setting out the course. - George Humphreys
George also wrote up his exploits for the Rides List on Yahoo and allowed us to copy them for you all to readhere..., a very entertaining read. Thanks George.

Great day out and seeing Robin Looms on the xl250 drive into a tree (which I think was caught on camera) is the funniest thing I've ever seen! - Christopher Harvey
It might be worth your while looking up the word Revenge in a dictionary Christopher, just so you're prepared you understand. He's bound to get you back.

I enjoyed the day and thanks for your hard work in preparing for the trial. - Trevor Wall
Thanks for being a reserve that came through Trevor.

About those roadbooks. I really prefer them when you have 4 pictures across the page then I spend less time winding them. I did enjoy the event though - Mike Rees
I take your point Mike but we have less room for text as backup with 4 pic's and our brilliant semi automated software allows us to chop and change right up to the last minute but only in one column. Colin Jones

Super Event and thanks for all your hard work. Ouch! my head hurts from that branch though! - Andrew Luff
So you think there is no advantage to being short do you?
