Thank you to everybody for supporting Sheffield & Hallamshire MCC with the 2nd running of ‘The Hallamshire Trial’. The weather conditions on Friday and Saturday hampered us somewhat but fortunately the water level dropped so we could have a trial – a hard one at that! The consolation is that it was about as slippery as it gets so hopefully next year it will be a bit more favourable. Well done to everybody who persevered and finished the trial and well done to all class winners as there were some superb scores in the tough conditions. Many thanks to the land owners and observers as we would have no trial without them. Thanks to the signing on and results team, the course setting team and anybody else who helped in any way at all. See you all next year.
We would love to hear your feedback on the trial and what you thought to the severity of the sections: https://forms.gle/piaoRJckDufzCMV29
Entry list and Final instructions attached for the The Hallamshire Trial – final round of the ACU Normandale Masters Trials Championship
Entries for our road trial – The Hallamshire Trial on Sunday 27th October 2019 will open at 9am on Monday 23rd September. We have a new start venue this year as unfortunately Mill Farm has been sold and we can’t gain access at the moment. The new start venue will be Cherry Tree Farm, Cowley Lane, Holmesfield, Dronfield S18 7SD. We have some brand new sections which have never been used before and some of the old favourites so it looks like another great event. There are all the usual Normandale classes – Over 40, 50 & 60 + Air cooled mono and twinshock. We also have non championship classes for all abilities. Entries close on 21st October at midnight unless they are full before. Entries are via the ACU Online entry system only – https://www.ride-acu.uk/secure/login.aspx – Entries are limited to 125 riders so don’t hang about!
The club AGM is to be held on Tuesday 15th October at the Rutland Arms, Main Road, Holmesfield starting at 8pm prompt.
Any items to be discussed please email to email@example.com – this is the chance for any club members to have their say.
Richard Timperley, Leigh Elliot, Mark Timperley and Jonny Carr laid out the course and did a great job of handling the new woodland sections. Thanks to all the S&H team for the job of setting up on the day and helping raise money along the way.
All the riding aside we managed to raise over £1100 between the chosen charity Bluebell Wood Hospice.
A massive thank you goes to the landowner for allowing the event to take place and to all the observers who braved the intense heat to support the event and make it as special as it always is. Thank you again to all who came and contributed without you it wouldn’t be possible.
