Rob Pike has passed on ‘Gazzers’ reminder for the Winterhead:
“The Mendip Vale Club kick off their 2014 Trials season with their first event – the Winterhead Trial on 19 January. This excellent venue provides an opportunity to enjoy a good variety of sections in the heart of the Mendip Hills in Somerset. The Club Organisers were “knocked back” with only eleven riders turning up for the December Turkey Trial, so are hopeful of a better turnout for another event which will suit everyone.
The action takes place at Churchill Rocks, signposted on the A38, at Churchill south of Bristol. Start time 10.30 and enter on the day.
The course will be entirely off road and cater for all abilities, from Expert through to Beginners over three routes, with a fourth 50/50 route for the Wessex Centre Clubman Expert grade, so if you haven’t got back into the riding mode after the Festivities it will be a good start to shed some of that “excess!”
