Our first club practice evening will take place on Thursday 24th May.
8 sections, 3 routes, 4 laps - all for the princely sum of £5!
Sign on at Fron Woods at 6:00 PM.
The first round was like night and day compared to the Lomax a few weeks earlier, or should we say the difference between cold and hot.
Yes finally we had good weather - thank goodness!
Many of the passers by along the canal had a good view and the amount that stopped walking, running, cycling and even canoeing to get a good eyeful was plentiful. Only the barges didn't stop :-)
All thoughts of going home with a clean bike dissolved when we headed in to the wet wood, I think that place holds the earths supply of mud even in summer! One section was good (Brads), one was bad (Billy's) and one was ugly as hell. (Dieter's). While Kyle Hayes slipped off course trying to get in the section he didn't make many mistakes once in the section or in fact any section dropping just 4 marks the whole trial, more than a few think he has modified his bike so it carries helium. Rounding out the top places in experts was Tony Buckley and Aled Price (running his Dad's bike - does he know yet?). All 12 Inter riders didn't have it much easier than the experts, especially on section five but Oliver Pitt made it look easier than most and went on to win the class.
Novice winner Steve Carthy
Over 40 winner Tony Gush
Over 40 plus Peter Ruscoe
Pre 65 winner Terry Lloyd
All the above won there respective classes with only 20ish marks dropped - well done fellas and many were on vintage steads.
Adult beginners was as close as you like with of a few marks between the top 3 but in the end Shane Oliver ruled supreme on unlucky for some but not for him 13 marks.
19 young ones battled it out in the conducted and all had stories to tell.
Jack Buckley, Lewis Herdsman, Tai Burgess, Steffen Jones, Tomos Reece, Lucy Backer, Ellis Barton all went on to win there class, well done to all.
Cracking weather, cracking day and a cracking time - it's all good when the sun comes out!
Thanks to everyone who turned out especially those helping make it happen as usual, the observers did a wonderful job really big thanks to them and those who stuck the markers in the ground - you are all what makes it happen.
