Anyone have any substance to annual rumours?

Ha, was waiting for Blackpool, I preferred the 3 lap course, but as I won't be doing it I'm not hugely bothered.

Agree I also preferred the 3 lapper, the extra bit felt very contrived.

IIRC they moved to a 2 lapper to reduce overcrowding on the bike, but have introduced rolling swim starts, which spreads the field. There would be more FOP lapping BOP on a 3 lap course with the rolling start, than originally with the mass start, but the field is more spread early.

Also pint of bothered as I'm not doing it....**

** unless they drop an extra 30 KQ's in like Tenby this year....
