Im glad there coming here - but worry it will be another money loser for TTC. Many wont go. Try comparing videos of the 2011 vs 2012 BTC and tell me again its more fun to watch and better on TV. On the contrary - its far worse. No wow factor. Will not pull in youth riders. The only exciting thing about it is the arguments after the event debating the scoring. I love the sport and no stop bores me to sleep. The world sports scene is trending to the more extreme, not the nostalgic side of sports. Put a stop watch on the sections at the club level if your waiting 5 minutes for champ riders. (like they have at WTC) and open them up. Its a heck of alot easier for a observer to hear the ring of a countdown timer than to determine if zero forward velocity was detected. 90 seconds is not alot of time and the boing time is kept to a minimum. I enjoy a technical setup, but agree with you that there's too many box and hop setups. Excerpt from Andy over at TC after witnessing two BTC events in 2012. We’ve been told that bike sales are in decline and that the no-stop move was to encourage more entries and subsequently increase the sale of bikes. Who’s going to buy those bikes? The guys and girls already riding the championship? No. They’ve already got bikes. Spectators? The no-stop rules will encourage spectators to take up the sport and go out and buy a bike. Maybe, but we’d have to ask “What spectators?” We only attended two British Championship Trials last year and in terms of Spectators both were very poorly attended. We even left the second one early because it just wasn’t entertaining to watch, let alone try and take dynamic photos of and subsequent reports from numerous sources have said exactly the same. No-stop just isn't spectator friendly. The British Championship is supposed to be a showcase of the best of our riders impressing and wowing. That’s what people want to see. That’s what will make little Johnny pester his Dad to buy him a bike. We also think that the marketing and promotion for the British Championship is atrocious which certainly doesn’t help with attendance figures, but that’s another story, for another day.
