Uh, dramatic headline. Well, the situation is the following: January this year, we were 3 persons organizing this, then we were 2 and thought ok, this will be more work, but we can do it. Now it turns out I am the last man standing taking responsibility for this. But well, this is not realistic for me.
I got offers to help marking trails, cleaning etc, but this is not enough. I need at least one more person, rather 2, who share the responsibility and want to make this happen. Much work is already done, but there is also some work remaining.
So, especially to the Tromsø local scene, if you want a race, send me a mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), the latest until the end of June!
In case nobody else is up for the responsibility, I suggest a simple gathering at the same location as last year, i.e. the Straumsbukta camping area. I’d be there and certainly other local bikers and we could take «guided» tours around there. Lots of possibilities from that place as a basecamp: flow trails at Straumsbukta itself, big lines at Malangen on the other side of the Fjord and more. Nothing «official», just a bunch of bikers hanging around having fun 🙂
This is not supposed to be a post being all bitter about the lack of help, just a simple reality check that I am not able to stem this by myself. We did it last year as 2 person team and made a start, now it is up to the lokal scene if we want to continue having a race or not. I got lots of interest from bikers who want to participate, so it seems that people want to race!
