We have stopped doing the Trailseeker series a loooong time ago. It's always bottlenecks, or poor marking, or knowledgeable locals taking short cuts, or messed up results. It is probably fun for 2,400 fun riders, but there is just too much probability for things to work against your hard work. Last year at Cullinan my son got a sponsored entry and we decided to give it another shot. So he raced his head off and finished in the top 3 (40km). Then they get some 25k riders in the mix with the 40k results. So we point it out to the officials. Then they fix it, but soon others get in through the same problem. Point it out again, but they don't fix it. Eventually the prize giving became the next problem as he gets his category position, but not the overall position prize money. So, no prize there. But, I tell my 15 year old boy to chin up. By Monday the results were an even bigger mess. There is a place on the results page with "results queries" which I politely filled in and pointed out my concerns in a gentle manner. No reply or response. Totally lost interest in the series. I still think it is a great ride for fun and more series fun riders and for the first few 70k riders. From there on things becomes a blur.
