Regs for Mendips Phoenix trial & Wells’ Centre Championship ‘John Stait’ Timed Trial are posted.

Here we are, we’ve posted the Mendip ‘Phoenix Trial’ Regs, which is on today fortnight, Gary Scrivens is CofC I notice, good to see the connection continues! We’ve also got up the Centre Timed Trial Championship re-arranged John Stait Regs. That’s on 11th May         Find them in the usual place?

A day at home today even though there’s a couple of things going on in the Centre – the first  Kingswood Club Series Trial up at Horton, & the Jack Ball Chase, a North Somerset Timed Trial over at Compton Dando. Hedge trimming & ‘lawn’ mowing seem more important! Dont forget the Wyndham Haines Centre Champ Trial at Lambs Lair next Sunday though.

Very sorry to read in TMX of the fatal accident to Si Higgins, son of ACU Chairman, Brian, in a track building accident.

Appropos of nothing, I saw Ricky Wiggins [& Joe Baker] lost 118 in the British Championship Trial at Kelly Farm in Devon last weekend. When you se that Jim Dabill & Michael Brown lost 29 & 40 as winner & R/up you know it was a really tough day! The Normandale Traditional Champs still have a strong following, with last weekends 4th round being up in Bilsdale {northallerton Club] Local man Martyn Wilmore lies 5th in Class A – pre 65, & I notice Dave Thorpe has dropped {?} down to the O60 Modern class where he carries on winning. Kevin Hart who we see in Wessex from time to time is leading the O50 Modern class with 3wins & a R/up spot so far. The British Sprint Enduro Championships got under way at just up the A46 at Chavenage. Not a good week-end, 4 bikes from the Freestyle team were stolen on Friday night, good to see Aaron Poolman & Matt Ridgway placing well in the big boys {Elite} class. George Hayes was in the U19 Class, & Dan Beavan & Tyson Maytom-Jones were riding in the Experts — all three former schoolboy triallists with West Wilts when they were running Schoolboy Trials.

Right, that’s it for now: Frank
