  1. Any virus can be caught a second time - colds, flu etc. If you’ve had it and beat it your body will store the Antibody in your white blood cells and if you catch again your body will fight much quicker.
  2. Very very key words in that statement ‘up to 24 hours’ The very nature of most cardboard / paper means it’s largely absorbant so if someone had the virus (or any virus) and if they sneezed, coughed etc on the paper / cardboard then yes the virus would be transmitted onto that surface. Reality is that this would then absorb the moisture and the virus would be dead pretty quickly If someone had the live virus on their hand (highly unlikely btw) and touched the paper / cardboard and it moved there, then again it would absorb, even quicker and die. for punchcards, gloves solve problem and really only the rider needs to touch it during trial and could be washed after trial. Like I said, small, simple and quick changes could make trials happen again.
  3. Ultimately as things ease the fear would ease. A virus cant live on paper / card etc and unless pen was metal you're more likely to win the euromillions than catch anything from a pen / clipboard. Anyway. Sign on could be easily solved - sign on and get number from car / van as you enter the ground - hope most people have or can have a pen in their car / van. Enter on day either take form and fill in in car / van then social distancing as hand form / money over (see above re: transmitting via paper / plastic) or have a strict NO ENTRY on day policy. Queues relatively easily managed, back to back with no side by side queuing. If people wearing gloves (and from my experience most do) grabbing same branch etc wont matter a jot. Same for pulling people out of a section, picking up a bike if someone falls off etc etc. Trials could be a relatively simple sport to run again with minimal changes.
  4. I'd imagine (and just my opinion) that the change from Reiger to Ohlins was a financial decision by Gas Gas as a way to cut costs and maximise profit as the Reiger cost v's the current Ohlins shock cost is a sizable difference I have tried both and definitely prefer the Reiger on my GP Ohlins make great rear shocks and in various different specs. The spec on the Gas Gas is not their top spec rear shock set up. If you could compare the top spec Ohlins with the 3 way Reiger then I'm sure it would be a much closer call and probably come down to personal preference. As it is the Ohlins is still a very good shock and a professional set up would make it feel better again but for me the Reiger works and feels better

    Electric start

    Not much of an expert in electric starts and the associated faff / tech. Does $500 (pretty much £400) seem a lot of money to save you having to kick?
  6. Hi Nick

    Thanks for your reply over the years I have been a member of both trials clubs Bleak hall was a good site .im looking for somewhere a bit further afield and a bit more remote. Do have any other ideas 

    thanks

  7. Guess the support is there from the manufacturers a bit in the 125 class as there is a market there for 125's with all the junior classes around Europe / the world. I guess once the riders go to Trial2 the manufacturers have less to gain by continuing to support the rider. Massive shame as Kieran is a really good guy and great rider with potential.
  8. Hopefully problems gone now. Just need to make them again now ?

    2035

    Dont worry, wont happen anyway just a green 'box ticking' exercise Car manufacturers have spent billions on hybrid tech, not a hope they'll walk way from combustion engines. Governments will blame lack of infrastructure - charging points, hydrogen stations etc but reality is manufacturers and their £££ talks
  10. If using ATF I'd say much safer using Dexron III as it is higher grade. Never seen anyone using Dexron II

    GG UK riders

    So is this the beginning of the end for GG UK as we know (have known) it? with Price signing for Vertigo, Thorpe seemingly moving on, Haslam riding Montesa it’s doesn’t look like GG UK will remain for long and it will amalgamate in to KTM UK (makes sense, why would KTM need a UK GG importer?) but seems a shame that any supported riders are having to look elsewhere. is there anything remotely official from GG UK or KTM about what’s happening?
  13. As far as I’d heard Sherco UK (MRS) we’re only bringing in the Factory models and not the standard Sherco for 2020
  14. Yep. Think (for UK at least) the ONE R is the entry bike for 2020
  15. Too simple to have same rules ?
