Weymouth Delivers for the BSA

A great forecast brought the crowds to round two of the British Slalom Association tour, hosted by OTC/Puravida at Weymouth.

We will have a full report online very soon, from none other than slalom supremo and new centre manager Kev Greenslade, but in the mean time we caught up with the men in charge of the OTC and Puravida respectively, Tris Best and Jim Brooks-Dowsett, for their thoughts on the weekend.

“This was the fifth time we’ve hosted the BSA at OTC UK … and the fifth time we’ve had enough wind to get a result! The event keeps getting bigger and better and was a great way to celebrate our union with Puravida here in the UK.

Got to thank Steve “party man” Howlett for all his help in organising the evening’s activities and Kev Greenslade for instigating the pugil sticks ents – definitely going to be more of the same in the future. Exciting times ahead…and then there’s the Olympics!” Tris 

“Despite some challenging weather the number of competitors and guests was amazing!  It was a fantastic weekend with credit to all who helped, we were stoked to host the event and have three team riders in the to 10″ Jim
