Sundays Salutation Novice Trial Regs available, Centre Trials Championship Tables & Grading List. TSR 8 – Requirement for Youth Riders to have a Lanyard operated ignition cut-out.

Good morning,

Please find Sundays Wilts Border Trial Regs here WBorder Salutation Novice 020314

I see that my suggestion that Kurt would post best performance at the Championship Avery Cup Trial last Sunday proved correct.As it happens Kurts winning margin over Rob of 7 marks can be explained by their performances in my section! Only in Section 3 did Rob prove ‘better’ than Kurt [by 6marks] so it was actually pretty close between them. It proved to be a good competition between them, hopefully we will see Rob at more of our Championship Rounds during the year.

As I wasn’t copied into the Avery Results, I had to hunt them down on Monday morning via the link [see the right hand frame] provided to Kingswoods own website. However, Pete Dury has sent over Centre Championship Placings after this, the first Round, together with the new 2014 Wessex Centre Trials Grading List. You can find this/them here 2014 Centre Trials Champ Tables as at 24:02:14

I draw the attention of all those adults responsible for Youth Riders, & all Event Officials, that youth riders have “an operational lanyard operated cut out device” fitted to their machine.  See TSR 8 in your 2014 ACU Handbook.

You or your Rider can expect to be stopped from starting the Event if you do not comply


Important message from Jan Watkins. A taste of todays Avery Cup Trial

Hi all,

We’ve been out at Kingswoods’ Avery Cup Trial today. A good day, it didn’t rain, it wasn’t cold, I observed Section 5 & I think there were 77 Riders on my Board – I haven’t seen the results yet to confirm. The Club did well to run considering the water that was apparent in lots of places where it usually isn’t.

Before the start I had a message from Jan,

“Bad news, The BSSA Reg Lewis Trial 9th March planned for 19th  March has been postponed due to the weather as parts of the course and the parking area are waterlogged. The good news is, it has been relocated to the 3.08.2014.

Now I’m prejudging here, & only with my thoughts from my Section, but other things being equal Kurt Brain will be the winner from Rob Warner. My Section was modified for Experts for the second lap by removing one pair of white deviation arrows, this allowed a straight blast up the steep slope witha big step at the top {it was a cracker of a Section then}, Kurt went 5,0,0 Rob went 5, 5, 1{I think} & Fred Adams went 5,5, 3 [I think]. Kurt on his cleans put in a lovely little rear wheel hop to his left on the first downhill which allowed him to not shoulder dab the tree on his right or foot dab on the rock outcrop. Of course as Rob & Fred were both on 4stroke Honda power dainty little flicks are more [impossibly?] difficult & both  needed shoulder & foot dabs. Dropping off the step again [& the drop off was bigger than the step up!] to the ends card also needed very precise positioning which Kurt managed & Rob & Fred didn’t so Rob didn’t get near the ends gate [too far right] until his last lap, & Fred tucked the front wheel against the tree beside the left end card & didn’t get out until the last lap. From an Observers point of view it was brilliant, two genuine cleans showed it could be done, pretty to watch.

If you are a parent you’ll know that you never get rid of the children? When we left, Rob was beside the Van waiting for his parents to turn up with a spare set of Van keys as he’d lost his set somewhere around the course!   I’m guessing here but I think Rob will have traveled furthest to the start today.

Before the start, Centre President Theresa Talbot wearing her ‘Chain of Office’ presented Nipper Allen with the Harry Croft Trophy for 2013 I’ll post a Picture tomorrow!

That’s it for now: Frank

Regards  Jan

BSSA 2nd Alan Brown Results & Reg Lewis Trophy Regs. BVM

Hello all,

West Wilts Dinner last night, it looked to us as if a good time was had by all. The next Dinner in the Centre is Kingswoods on 21st March.

As above Jan Watkins sent over the Results of the 2nd Alan Brown which you can find here BSSA2ndAlanBrown020214 & also the BSSA Reg Lewis Trophy Trial 160314

Sad News that BVM has gone out of business, a sign of the times perhaps. I hope all the people concerned can ‘pick up the pieces’ & get on with the next chapter in their lives quickly
