Thanks very much to all the riders for supporting us with our first go at running a Kia Championship round, we hope you all enjoyed your day as much as we did putting it on for you. If you have a bold 5 on your score it is due to no score being recorded on the observers card. Many thanks to the results team of Mark & Carol Timperley and Chris Pearson. Thanks to all the observers for giving up their time so you can have a good day. Please remember to thank them as the trial doesn’t run without them.

It was a Gas Gas domination at Sheffield & Hallamshire’s annual Christmas Trial held at Eadons Fields, with recent Gas Gas UK signing Richard Sadler making his trip down from North Yorkshire worthwhile by taking victory over fellow team riders Richard Timperley and Dan Thorpe.
It was to be a close affair, with 12 sections plotted in the streams and bankings requiring precise no-stop riding that would be happy to take prisoners if any mistakes were made. Sadler proved why he took the British Expert championship in 2018 by dropping just 7 for the day, with a superb clean final lap securing his victory. Meanwhile local rivals Timperley and Thorpe were at each other’s heels all day, Richard edging out his team mate on 12 marks to Dan’s 14. Fourth place was taken by Lee Sampson, who has recently returned to the sport after some time away, his score of 36 was enough to push Corey Dubik into fifth place on 38 marks.
It was another Gas Gas victory on the ever popular Clubman A route, with Darren Wasley cruising to victory on just 1 mark lost, dropped on his first lap on the tight twisting climb of section 11. Second position was taken by Sam Clarke, who proved that you don’t need the latest machinery by piloting his Yamaha Pinky round the 12 section course for just 13 marks, and despite an uncharacteristic 5 on his first lap he managed to secure second position over Mick Thompson in third. Mick, making the long trip up from Devon, took a 3 mark advantage over fourth place rider Katy Sunter, with fifth place taken by Gas Gas UK spannerman Factory Kev Hipwell a further 3 marks adrift.
Over on the Clubman B route, it was the legendary Dave Thorpe, again on a Gas Gas, who reigned victorious despite a rather nasty crash, on a score of just 14, edging out David Perry for second and Adam Wormald for third. The recently introduced Sportsman route saw Steve Ransom take a dominant victory on just 7 marks on his Yamaha Pinky, followed by the young determined Jack Owen on his Oset on 95 marks.
Sheffield & Hallamshire’s next trial is to be held on the 27th of January at Stonedge Quarry near Chesterfield.

We are making this a regular thing so please support her at future trials. Massive thanks to all the observers. On a slightly upsetting note, I don’t know the full details but, one of the observers handed their board back to the start tent after a disagreement with a couple of riders. We would like to remind all riders to be polite to the observers and should we hear of any further behaviour of this sort, we will be taking matters extremely seriously, which could result in the offending riders being banned from future trials by this club.

Massive thanks to all the observers who gave up their time, as riders please remember to thank them, they are only there for you to have fun. Thank you to all of the land owners for letting us use their land for all of the great sections and access between them. A huge thank you goes to Mill Farm for the superb start venue and facilities.
David Shard has kindly let us use his photo’s from the event, there is loads more on his Facebook page.
Observers information is below for Sunday. Can all observers be at Mill Farm in plenty of time (7:30 am onwards) to collect their equipment, have a butty and a drink etc and then get to their section. There are rough ETA’s on the attached list but these are very rough as the ground is very dry so the riders may be a fair bit quicker than estimated.
