NSMSC’s Jack Ball TT results, Mendip’s Traders Champ Trial Regs, SSDT etc.

Good morning,

First off Jerry Walters has sent over NSMSC’s Jack Ball Chase Results, where Jason Hamblin & Andy Frost were Trials & Scrambles tyred winners respectively. See them here 13thapril 2014

Rob Pike has sent over Gazzers ‘puff’ for the Mendip Vale MC & LCC Traders Trophy , which is always one of the best Trials in the Centre:

“With Easter fast approaching the Mendip Vale Trials Team are making arrangements for the Vale Traders Trophy Trial on 20th April 2014.

The Club are returning to the popular Frys Bottom course at Chelwood near Bristol for the event, which is a round of the Wesssex Centre Championship.

As this is a round of the Championship it will run under the “no stop” rule, but even if you are not a fan of “no stop”, come along and give it a go, as the Club will be putting a lot of effort into ensuring the sections will suit all the Championship classes.

The course will be entirely off road and cater for all abilities, from Expert through to Novice and Over 50, with a fourth 50/50 route for the Wessex Centre Clubman Expert grade.

Start time is 10.30 and the venue will be signposted from Chelwood Village and the roundabout on the A38, just South of Bristol. Entries close on 17th April, with an extra charge for entries on the day.

As in previous years we are planning 2 laps of 20 sections, to enable us to carry out this format we will require 20 observers so any rider that provides an one will get a free entry to our next club trial

Full details for this event are in Regs Available or on the web site – www.mendipvalemcc.co.uk/  ”

BSSA’s Glenis Sinclair Memorial TT Regs for Sunday week are published here Entry Form 1.5 hr Glenis Sinclair 27.4.14  & the 3rd Alan Brown TT Results are here   Results 3rd Alan Brown 6.04.2014

SSDT: The Scottish Six Day Trial  starts on May the 2nd. I’ve quickly reviewed the Entry List, & we don’t have many entrants this year. Fred Adams is giving it another go under the Kingswood banner & is 22nd away, Becky Cook [who is almost a Centre resident] rides at 34 for Isle of Wight MCC. Adam Norris riding again as a West Wilts member has No 90. This year his long time riding partner, Scott Cameron hasn’t entered as he has a big family celebration on the 6th day, the Saturday, & being the sportsman he is, decided not to enter knowing he would not finish the event, & therefore deprive another hopeful of an entry. Adam has some quality riders around him though, with Chris Pearson at 86 & Dan Thorpe at 87. Scott’s brother Mark has entered under the Richmond Club banner on a Honda 4RT  at 110. Craig Talbot misses the event this time {saving up to get wed I imagine}

South West Centre is fairly well represented, with Lee & Ricky Wiggins although Lee ride No 2 [!] & Ricky No 270, they also have Tony Rew, Grant Laming & brothers George & Rob Pollard, George Edyvean is from Cornwall Centre from memory. Older stalwarts like Dave Clinkard, Steve Moore & Carlos Casas are also in for the week.

Good luck, to all riders as you will need it, whatever your standard of riding, & have a great week.

Scott Trial.

OK, I have a picture of my 2009 purple Scott Trial hat taken in Kirkenes-  is that the furthest North one has ever been? I’ve heard that Fred Adams [that man again] & Greg Hodge intend to enter this year. Delighted to hear that, so I’ll offer to pay their Entry Fees, the only condition is that they start. If they finish that will be a good days work & an Award would be a big achievement. I’d hope whatever the outcome of their endeavour they will want to improve on it next year, then they will be hooked! Good on you guys.
