we’ve a few things for you to take note of:
First the Results for the Kington Cup Wilts Border Trial last Sunday, w-border-kington-cup-results-080117-1 – good to see an excellent entry!
And next the Regs & Entry Form for the North Somerset Terry Bunn Trophy Centre Championship Time Trial on The 5th of February, nsmsc-ttrial-champs-terry-bunn-050217
Didn’t we have a battle for the 2016 Centre Trials Champion where it ended up all change after the last Round. Just how a Championship should be, in doubt until the final Round. I know there weren’t as many riders contesting the Expert Class as we would like but I’d like to thank all those guys who supported us & who were in with a shout at the Knut Trophy. At the end of the Knut, the Result of the Trial & the Championship had to come down to the last tie breaker!
I did see a comment somewhere about a ‘works’ rider being able to score points ( I presume because whoever made the comment thought it had affected the Championship positions) but it made no difference to the final Result. The “works” rider in question has to be Toby Martyn & I think we should all be pleased that Toby chose to enter one of our Events. It’s a bit like saying that the Rules should be ‘bent’ i.e. the Rules should be changed to exclude Works Riders from the Championship, think about that, then someone would want to exclude riders not Resident in the Centre, then … Well the Centre wants to encourage our own Riders to improve, & how do we encourage that, not by running a “closed” Championship I’m sure, the one restriction placed on Entrants is that they are Members of a Club Affiliated to the Wessex Centre.
If I recall correctly, Toby was announced as a Vertigo contracted rider this year (?) & I for one wish him all success in future Events, hope he stays injury free & fulfils his undoubted potential. I’m sure that all of you out there do as well & just wish a little bit of Toby’s skill rub off on us or if we don’t compete these days that we can at least admire them at home & abroad.
