No disrespect to the riders. It didn't change the fact that they still road the required miles (which is a feat in itself). I just felt with the 10'n'10 in 2010 that the IBA would look to make an even better rally not cheese out.
I think Steve Chalmers is trying to bring the riders to the forfront instead of the rally itself. He has a pretty damn good track record at his events. Same goes for Team Strange up north. They keep making the events bigger and better. The riders seem to come back year after year for these events.
I have a lot of respect for IBA members just not the Rally.
I'm hoping the IBA has learned from it's mistake and next year redeems themselves?
