I'm not sure about that decision, possibly Viki, has more variety there! Bit lost on the format now, as few guys have touched, and just carry on... has potential to be great if this is consistent!

bring back the 3 minute run this jam crap dont screw the pressure down hard enough on the riders.to much fred astaire!

Yeah, I agree with Phil. 2.5 - 3 minute run system is the best.
Rider actually knows when he has to be ready, in the battles you need to be ready whenever another rider makes a mistake.

certainly worked good at king of southsea phil! 2 x 3 min runs, best run counts, drop your shit! boom leave!

i'm just old and crusty but i remember the general consensus was to aim for the perfect run minus dabs puttin your own flavour in there.im not knockin the riders or riding in the video i just would rather watch a good run by each rider than see the three of them taking turns blahblahblah anwsers on a postcard please

Unlike yourself Phil, I have zero experience of comps, so fairdo's.

The battle format was originally in place to make things more exciting for spectators and outside sponsors, media... now with that said, there's very little money in flatland , not even in this world circuit, so.. it didn't really work.
There to different schools of people it seems like, those "new school" who think the 3 min run is old and played out, and the "old" riders are bored of too much fred astaire. Whats giving?
