Perhaps a sign of things to come! From the beginning of this project it was crisis management all the way. Allowing for the inevitable teething problems of a “first time project”, the phrase “That will do – I think”, was the standard. What seemed like a pretty straight forward deployment of equipment turned into nightmare of faulty brakes on the mast – I’d been told that it had had a full overhaul, to flat batteries, no safety equipment and no site specific safety. Despite all that, due to much goodwill and hard work it went very well as the non employees of NextGenus, myself included and several others including the Forestry Commission, a Health and Safety professional, we managed to make safe and the project went well.
It is to be hoped that lessons have been learnt well and the 2011 Mountain Bike Championship project will run smoothly.
