Good evening, ladies and Gentlemen, please find attached the preliminary results from last weekends trial at the Duck Pond. Being British we all have a preoccupation with the weather and how inaccurate the forecasting can be, well I’m delighted they got it wrong again, it stayed fair all trial and it’s a good job, as with the mainly grass sections it would have been a great deal harder.In Experts there were some great rides, with the usual stellar ride from Pete Ashmore in twins-hock, matched in Brit-bike by Oliver Cooper who also dropped a solitary mark. In Air cooled both Rob and Mark dropped 2 marks sharing the top spot. To be fair all of the experts did well, with some challenging sections to overcome.In Classic Expert to rides stand out, its great to see Pete Carson back on top form with a clean sheet and in twin shock Paul Noble dropping a solitary one, well done !In Inters there was a proper scrap in twin shock with Andy Abraham coming out on top on the big Fantic, in Brit bike Dave Pattison continued his winning ways dropping 3 marks, in Air cooled we need to mention Bill Brown and his slightly unusual plan to sit out half the trial and then blitz the sections in the last hour, seemed to work !In Classic Inters another win for Nick College shows the last ride was no fluke, and a special mention for Andy Hicklin who had a great ride peaking in joint 2nd place with Dave Cox.In sportsman and vets it looks like a couple of riders need to move up, with Cliff going clean and Peter Jordon dropping just 2 marks, great rides. Dave Pickering did well again in Brit bike and Paul Corbridge taking the honours in Air cooled.It just remains to give our thanks to Simon for the use of his great venue, lots of you really like the Duck Pond. Thanks to Andy and his team for another great trial, great job Guys. Thanks to all the observers, especially those who didn’t plan on observing but did so with good grace and finally to you the riders for your continued support.See you at the next oneAndy & the team
2022 season notes
(1) Tie break rules. Two or more riders tying will receive the same points for that position, with the next placed rider getting the point for the next numerical placing. So 2 riders tie for 1st place, both get the full championship points, the second placed rider will get the points for third. In the event of a tie in the championship standings after the last trial in November , it has been decided to run a “RIDE OFF” at the December presentation trial, this will involve the riders who are tied riding three selected sections until a clear winner is evident, it is to be run prior to the start of the main trial so all riders can watch.
(2) Club Championship– it has been decided to have 10 championship trials over the year, with one being a Trophy trial, and the December trial being the presentation trial. The minimum number of trials to be considered for an award has been reduced to 6 with the ability to drop 4 rounds ( all 6 must be in one class to be eligible ) from the 10 championship trials.
