Decline in Races - Why is this happening?

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Many will have seen a recent announcement that the Highland Fling maybe following the demise of so many other races with even the Mont and the Kowalski coming to an end this year. I'd be interested in what people think as to why these things are happening. Is it:
1. These races are run for profit and not volunteers and therefore are prone to declines in sponsorship?
2. That people are changing habits and want to do more downhill when these races are marathon by nature?
3. That we're not promoting the sport enough?
4. That the races were just not that enjoyable?

My wife is having surgery on the Friday before the race. So Ive had to pull out.

I need to find someone to take my place. Its an awesome event, some of the sweetest single trail you will ever ride..

The other 3 riders are fairly reasonable\experienced C: graders -- Anyone interested ??

We have an injured team mate (dislocated shoulder training at the dam) hence we have an opening in a 3 man team to make 4 at the MONT this weekend! All the costs of riding have been covered..

We are 30-35 years of age mid level riders out to try and set some lap records (yeah right) having a whole lot of fun along the way.

Keen to Enter a Team for the Mont 24 This Year

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hi Guys,

Some of my mates have already entered this event and the ones that haven't are too unreliable. I am keen to enter in a team of 4 for this years Mont at Sparrow Hill. So are there any groups out there looking for anotehr compeditor, or are the 3 others like me looking to join a group.

I would probably rate myself intermediate at distance riding and will train for the event.

I do like Beer and sleep at these events too.

Seems like the 2009 Mont will be in 4-5 April at Sparrow Hill. This should be fun. I quite enjoyed Sparrow. Very fast flowing singletrack.

What a weekend. Home now, completely buggered. Bring on next year? Laughing out loud

Please comment here (or in your blog, or in another event topic) on your experiences otherwise am sure the main thread will become overcrowded.
