I understand how domes work, i have ridden them before left the UK for Norway, and i can say, that unless you are already good, then getting time in them the time needed for practice, is extremely expensive...!!!
£30+ for 2 hours, in a Dome, and they only have park for maybe 2 days normally 1 day a week, so again, while it may be there, it is not easy...
I know that sponsorship helps, and rich parents, but this is not normal in the UK and the economy as it is, there are very few that can financially afford to support themselves let alone have enough time in domes...
All i was saying, is that it is nice to see how many we DO have coming through, but i think there is more to it than just having all year round availability on a slope that is normally only 160 meters long...
