Like the apple falling on Isaac Newton's head, the 2018 IDF race year dropped into existence today; the opening of Newton's 2018. The strong international field tested out the track, with its two massive crash corners; The Dipper and The Elbow.
Tomorrow will feature timed qualifying, with riders battling for the all-important high seed positions. From around 3pm the unofficial "Teams Race" will take place. Sunday will bring us the real head-to action, and a new set of champions in this, Newton's seventh year.
