What a difference a day makes – another SitRep. Results for North Somersets’ Valley Smokehouse Time Trial last Saturday

The Swindon Club have had to change the venue for this coming Sundays Trial! A Message follows:


There has had to be a rain enforced change of venue for this weekend, 15th July, which will see proceedings now take place at

The Old Station yard, Hannington, near Blunsdon

and NOT at Salthrop. With local events in the neighbouring Western Centre already scrubbed due to poor conditions, the Club expects to satisfy the needs of the frustrated trials riding fraternity.

The horrendous rainfall of recent weeks has not dampened the enthusiasm of Swindon & DMCC’s merry band of section plotters, borne out by the fact that the club’s Member’s Cup Trial will be staged on Sunday 15th July.

The venue provides a variety of cambers, climbs, root-laced and even stream sections for many abilities and will be staged regardless of the weather thanks to ample hard-surface parking. The course will consist of 10 sections to be ridden four times and caters for all adult and Youth A & B classes. A “sportsman” route is also included which is suitable for easy novice, twinshock and Over 50 entrants.

The Old Station Yard will be signposted off the B4019 Blunsdon to Highworth road east of Swindon. The postcode for the area is SN6 7RN.

Start time is 10.30 am and as an added incentive, 200 metres away is The Freke Arms pub where you’ll be able to recover after all your exertions.!!

Jerry Walters has sent over the Valley Smokehouse Results from last Saturday 7th July. You can find them on the Results page of course!
