TRIALS ACADEMY

Fifteen candidates attended the trials training day at Rogershill Farm. Only one youth unfortunately. Also there was one casualty. One rider fell awkwardly and sustained a shoulder injury. I hope it was not too serious and he has fully recovered.

Many thanks to Roger Johns who organised it all, to Brian Francis and Dave Gray making use of their recently acquired instructors licences. Thanks also to those committee members who turned up to help out and to Danny Hall for all his help.  Considering two previous training days in other parts of the Centre were cancelled all our members should be congratulated for carrying on and running the event.

 

HARDY TRIAL SUN NOV 17th.

Once again we are joining with Woolbridge Motor Club to run the motorcycle class of this event. Some of our long distance trials specialists have volunteered to help mark out the observed sections to hopefully give the bikes more of a challenge. Regs and details can be found on the Woolbridge website woolbridge/event/hardytrial.co.uk  with online and postal entry details. Entries close Nov 9th, so get your skates on.

SOUTHERN EXPERTS 1993

Many members will be unaware of the last time we ran the Southern Experts. A road based trial, the start was situated at the bottom of Whitesheet Hill on A356. Riders first headed for Toller Fratrum for two sections before following an unsurfaced track to Toller Porcorum and on to Eggardon Hill for more grass covered climbs. Two stream sections at Stones Common by the old railway line were next on the list before heading to our regular venue North Poorton Farm and the two rocky gully’s. Returning towards Rampisham Radio Station, the course returned to the chalk quarry by the start. Two laps of approximately 13 miles. Only Experts were allowed at that time and even then you had to qualify (win at least one OTC trial or so many first class awards also at OTC level.) The trial attracted about 40 entries. It was a VERY wet day. The winner was a very young Graham Jarvis with 40 marks lost.

And he is still winning. Hope our upcoming trial is as well received as that one was.
