I hope you all had a good day out at Dyrham Woods. Theresa has just mailed out the Results which you can look at here Bath & WoE Knut 08:12:13 res.
What an excellent Entry, including some classy visitors – Sam Haslam, Dave & Andy Clinkard & Tom Hooper. As usual it was an event that takes marks from everyone. Knut Trophy winner Sam Haslam dropped 17 with just one 5 on his card, by the look of it Section 7 was the difficult one as Sam dropped 2, 3, 3 – the best effort all day. Centre Champ Kurt Brain was R/up on 25 & former Centre Champ Gary Marshman was 3rd on 37. There were 18 Experts & with the last Expert finisher losing an average 4 per Section you know it was hard! Dave Clinkard must have had machine trouble as he didn’t complete a lap & as I was on Section 15 I didn’t see him all day.
A special mention for Youth Expert visitor Tom Hooper, this years National Youth B class Champion, who showed why with 1, 5, 3 on Section 7 & who was 2nd best on observation with a total 24m/l.
Rob Smith took A/B class on 28 with this years Champ, Rob Scott 4th on 89. Steve Watson took B class on 86 with Champion Tom Pike R/up on 108, Jonny Janaway was best C on 105
The o/40 class found Andy Clinkard winning on 29m/l with a tie break coming into play to place Hedley Ashford R/up in front of John Roberts on most cleans 24:21 , Champ Dai Clothier was best o/50 dropping just 61 & I’m hopeful that we shan’t see this chap Guy Clothier in TMX’s results in future as I’ve mentioned to Mick Perry during the week that it’s Dai not Guy!
I hope you riders have all enjoyed this years Championships & a special thanks to the three riders who have ridden all 11 Rounds, Centre Champ Kurt Brain, A/B Champ Rob Scott & o/50 Champ Dai Clothier, that’s commitment for you. Your thanks as well to all the Organising Clubs & especially their Observers.
So to sign off for today, keep your feet up & have a great Christmas.
