must be fairly velo-friendly, on account of the Germans being quite fond of velomobiles

i'm just worried about the hpv association banning fully-faired juniors

What's this, what's this ..... about this dastardly plot to stop famous Cornishman and current Junior World HPV Champion, Tim Parker retaining his title?

If true, we should withdraw our Ambassador immediately, stop buying German beer or ask our Secretary to 'do something! That'll sort 'em Ouch

Can't rely on him for anything... Big smile
 
Seriously... Does anybody know if this is likely to be an issue??
If so we really should make our feelings known...
 
We have several quick fully faired juniors - As well as Tm, Sarah will still just be a junior next year and was going frighteningly fast in the Yellow Donkey... and Jack has also been going well in the Paul Davies machine that I failed miserably to ride with the lid on... Anybody know if he will still be a junior in 2013??

sounds silly too me!
I imagine Chris won't be too happy when he finds out that Tim can't race.

Is there a rule from the WPVA saying that junios cannot be FF?  If not then i don't see how they can stop you, or any other junior taking part.
 
But if you planning on attending and they do say something I'm sure there will be a lot of vocal UK [eople lobbying on your behalf!
Ian, not so ex racer but still of dubious capability

Heike Bunte says the rumour isn't so. To the contrary, they support as much diversity as possible.
News in English and German will posted on the website from January onward.
Go, Tim!
