SSDT, BSSA – Results, Centre Champs 3rd Reg Lewis T/trial & Regs for Glenis Sinclair/Eco Angus T/trial

Good morning all,

Another one with beautiful sunshine!

Here we go,

Not long now for the start of the Scottish Six Day Trial. As always good luck to our local riders, since my early preview, the start list has been published [on 22nd March so there may be later changes] & from the Wessex Centre point of view the major change is that Scott Cameron is in. We have local interest with Becky Cook [on the TRS] Craig & Gareth Talbot at No’s 52,53 & 54, Adam Norris, Victoria Payne & Scott at No’s 116, 117 & 118, Fred Adams [with no obvious riding partners that I can see is at 179. We hope to see you all up there & encourage & support you whenever we can!

Other ‘notables’ are Dougie Lampkin on a Vertigo at 25, & I would expect him to be trying to win more than ever as a tribute to Martin. We don’t know whether Dougie has entered as an o/40 but if he has then we would expect the Adam/John Sirt battle to be for R/up spot! Fred Michaud, Thierry’s ‘minder’ in the Fantic heyday rides  No 84, Joe Baker & Tom Hoper are paired toward the back of the field at 227 & 228, probable best lady, Emma Bristow & James Fry ride together at 61 & 62.

We hope that our French correspondent Chris Wrigley may be there with Janet, although we know he has a hectic schedule — “……….  may get to Ssdt this year then rush back for 3 jours trial d Ardeche. Best regards to all our old friends. Just a little ps…re trials organisation in uk…believe me it is exemplary particularly with regard to promoting bums on seats compared to Spain & France.

The Results for BSSA’s last Sundays Centre Championship 3rd Reg Lewis Solo Timed Trial are here: BSSA Alan Brown 3rd Results 170416  – I see Andy Frost was best here as well as at the very tough [40% of entry retired] Corinium Enduro the week end before last. I see as well that Roger Brain was riding [missing spannering for Kurt?]

The Regs & Entry Form for BSSA’s next Time Trial, the 90minute Glenis Sinclair Memorial/Eco Angus Trophy on the 8th of May are here: BSSA GLENIS SINCLAIR T/trial Regs 080516

Plans for the West Wilts “Tanner Trudge” at Naish Hill on 12th June are well advanced so watch out for the Regs later on this week

See you soon: Frank

Good afternoon,

A Board Meeting last night – of which more later.

First, here  NSMSC Jack Ball Trophy Results 030416  are the North Somerset MSC Jack Ball Trophy Results which Jerry Walters has mailed over & he  comments,

“Evening Frank,    Results of yesterday’s [ie Sundays – Ed.] North Somerset Club 90 minute Time Trial, held at Frys Bottom Lane, Chelwood, are attached for the website.
In a very competitive scrambles class Andy Frost just pipped Tom Smith on the fastest time tie breaker, to take the overall premier on 9 marks. Harvey Dark took 3rd spot, just a further 2 marks adrift.
Jason Hamblin had a fairly high scoring ride by his standards, losing a total of 21 marks, but still took the trials class victory. Martin Lawford was not far behind on 24 marks, with non expert Ricky Hudson taking an excellent 3rd spot on 26.       —          Cheers, Jerry”

Next, NSMSC are running their next T/Trial on the 30th, the Regs are  NSMSC Colin Stenner Elec TT Regs & Entry Forms 300416 here

& now, we have updated Centre Championship Trials Points Tables from Pete Dury following the 3rd Round – the Valers Mendip Trophy Trial whose Results are Mendip Vale Traders Trophy Results 27.03.16 here. The updated Points Table is here 2016 Centre Champ Tables as at 28:03:16

I mentioned last nights Board Meeting: it was reported that the decision we took at the previous  Board Meeting [to amend the  Championship Rules such that there had to be 3 starters in a Class for Championship points to be awarded] had created a lot of noise on social media. The Centre Secretary had followed these conversations & made the comment that any Riders who felt the Board had ‘got it wrong’ to raise it via their Club’s Board Delegate(s) & also invited the same Riders to attend Board Meetings in person to suggest any Rule or other Changes, that might improve the Championships for them. 

Sadly neither that comment or the invitation haven’t been taken up, by any of you Riders, but the Board did consider the  viability of some of the Championship classes. You haven’t missed your chance to influence things, but it is disappointing that those who criticised haven’t, or can’t?, come forward with any better alternatives.
