Matteo seems to have the knack lately of being on the right bike at the right time. Good for him.

The rulebook is available online. If it's been changed I'd love to see it. 

Thanks, I assume you have now seen it!

 Up to 300 in Trial 2 and no limit in the GP class! Like it should be. I wonder if they changed anything else that is good, like the weight limit.

weight limits need to be enforced first...............

So it would be unfair for Adam to remove the weights because it would be unfair to Bou? ?

Adam may remove weights, toni could have weights in his airbox etc etc. AFAIK there has NEVER been an IN competition weight check so its all a farce anyway.

A Womens Class rider was DQ'd at a World Round a few years ago for being under the minimum weight. Her bike was weighed at the end of the loop when it was low on fuel. It had gone through the Weigh In, with a full tank of fuel and passed.

Pedantic, ridiculous and daft.

It was Becky Cook at a World round in France. Steps had to be taken to make sure the same thing didn't happen at the Women's TdN the following day...

I remember that now, yes 2016, afaik this was the one and only time on loop checking was done, unless @nhuskys you know different?

Never heard any top boys being checked randomly in recent years?
