We’ve just posted the Frome Ted Cox Trial results from Sunday, as well as the BSSA 4th Alan BrownTimed Trial Results from the 9th of June.
September seems a long way off but the Regs are available for the BSSA Brian Hudson Timed Trial on the 15th.
Good luck to all the Centre Teams in the Inter Centre Team Trial over the coming week-end, sorry we can’t be there to support you, but we’ve things to do on both days! Tong isn’t our favorite Trials venue in Yorkshire though.
Good to see Becky Cook on the top step of the Podium in a Ladies World Trials Round, I guess that’s the first time? Sandra Gomez R/up & Emma Bristow 3rd after, I gather, fouling up her timekeeping. Since that success though, Becky had to give best to Emma in another World Round & yesterday in the British Championship Round up in Birdlip, but with Emma clean & Becky on two it sounds as if it was a little on the easy side? Victoria Payne rode the “A” class route which has her riding half the Ladies Championship sections & half easier ones, so 30 m/l is another fine effort.
Hoping to get across to Iffendic to see the French MX Sidecar GP, we were hopeful that local runners Dan & Joe Millard might be in with a shout, but I’m not sure they are travelling to many of the GP’s this season, & Richard Jenkins, we read, has a broken collar bone which I’m not expecting to have healed, or to have been plated & screwed in time to be able to race in two Sundays time.
I notice Kevin Hart, who we see in the Centre from time to time, is doing the S3 Championship Rounds this season, & that both Dave & Andy Clinkard now ride in the O40 class. Doesn’t time fly?
Watched a little LeMans TV, over the weekend, every time I looked, there seemed to be pace car out. The first time I looked, during the first hour, & I heard it had been out since lap 4 I knew there had been a big one. Regretfully Allan Simonsen had a fatal crash at Tertre Rouge, there were other iffy incidents too. It’s all very well blaming tyres that can’t keep pressure if they aren’t worked hard enough, but shouldn’t we able to design tyres that will grip in a range of temperatures? Same thing in F1, tyres seem to be the thing you win or lose Races with, never mind the driver!
See you soon: Frank
