Brett King has sent over this note to reassure you that you’ll get an even better day at their ‘new’ old venue over near Minety.
“The horrendous rainfall of recent weeks has not dampened the enthusiasm of Swindon & DMCC’s merry band of section plotters, borne out by the fact that the club’s Member’s Cup Trial will be staged on Sunday 15th July. Clerk of the Course Keith Wooster inspected the venue last weekend and confirms that everything is in prime condition to mirror one of last year’s most popular rounds.
The venue was new for the club in 2011, providing a variety of cambers, climbs and root-laced sections for what was a well scrutinised event. Thankfully, good behaviour by all who rode and officiated has led to further areas being released for 2012 and Sunday’s event promises to be equally as enjoyable as last years. The course will consist of 10 sections to be ridden four times and caters for all adult and Youth A & B classes. A “sportsman” route is also included which is suitable for easy novice, twinshock and Over 50 entrants. Bassett Down at Salthrop near Swindon is the location and it will be signposted due south of junction 16 of the M4. Start time is 10.30 am so do come along for “A Trial with A View” and enjoy good sport in a cracking setting over-looking the Vale of Minety and The Cotswolds.”
Good to hear more ground is available this year than last due to the Events ‘good behaviour’
