Results for round 1 of the 2018/19 Winter Trials Championship

S&H Results Round 1 Stonedge

A big thank you to Joe Spivey and Corey Dubik for setting out, thank you to Bex & Marilyn for sorting the entries & everyone else involved! Thanks to Paula for bringing her fantastic Chefswagon. 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.
ACU codes, anyone who has paid for our club membership and requires a ACU code to renew their licence please text ACU CODE + your name to 07545468341 and we’ll send your unique code in return. For members who haven’t yet paid the membership fee, you can join and pay for our club membership while renewing your licence on the ACU website, so no code is required.

Please bring an observer as riders will receive a free ride in return but otherwise observers will be rewarded for their time. Please note that there will not be a butty van as Paula is away on her holidays. We hope to see you all there!

Thank you to Carol Timperley for setting out the score board & everyone involved in the behind the scenes magic that allowed the trial to run so smoothly today!

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.

The Hallamshire Trial Observers list/info

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.

The Hallamshire Trial – ACU Normandale Masters Championship

On Sunday 28th October, Sheffield & Hallamshire MCC are hosting ‘The Hallamshire Trial’ which is the final round of the ACU Normandale Masters Championship.

Originally this trial was due to be a resurrection of the Peak Trial which has been a round of the ACU Solo, Sidecar and Novogar (now S3) championships but the club have encountered land access issues at the last minute forcing the tough decision of whether to cancel or not.

The enthusiastic bunch at S&H don’t give up that easily though and after some stress and many phone calls and emails to landowners, Richard and Mark Timperley have managed to create a completely brand new 2 lap road based trial which is now centred in the small village of Barlow which is approximately 3 miles from Chesterfield and lies on the edge of the Peak District National Park so offers easy access for everybody.

The route is being finalised as you read this and it is looking like a 5 or so mile lap with 20 traditional sections so causes no fuelling issues as the last sections are at the start. Some sections may be familiar to some riders but the majority will be new and the potential for this trial going forward is massive as land is becoming available to us.

The usual Normandale classes are all catered for and there will also be a Clubman A & B class and Expert route for any non-championship riders.
The start venue offers a hard standing car park, on site café which will be serving food all day and permanent toilet facilities.

The start time is a bright and breezy 9:00 am for the first riders to ensure the best is made of the daylight available. The clocks go back the night before so everybody gets an extra hour in bed anyway!

Entries are now open via the ACU Online Entry system via this link: https://www.ride-acu.uk/Secure/Login.aspx?EventGUID=dc1ce3e8-d477-4702-827b-9928491a62a7

Entries close at midnight on 22/10/18. Please direct any further enquiries to Richard Timperley on 07545 468341 or via email: secretary.sheffandhallamtrials@gmail.com

Brough Rough ‘N’ 2018 – Andy Atkinson Memorial – Charity Trial

This year’s Brough Rough ‘N’ was one of the toughest yet with the battering across the moorland. The brave 64 who attended had met again with the challenge that are the Brough Rough ‘N’ sections.
The rain made even the most straightforward section seem tricky! But all who rode enjoyed the course thoroughly enjoyed themselves, with some outstanding riding coming from Chris Alford, Joe Spivey and Chris Pearson. All of whom came close to taking the win from Rich Timperley who kept his calm and overcame the conditions to take the win with only a slack 1 to his name.

With Timps the newly crowned king of the Brough Rough N’ he will take home the Andy Atkinson memorial shield, being handed out for the 1st time. He is now the first of (we hope) many riders to hold this honour, until next year when it will be contended all over again!

Joe Spivey, Jonny Carr and Chris Pearson laid out the course and did a great job of handling the changing conditions overnight. 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 £1000 between the chosen charities, The Yorkshire Air Ambulance and 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 cold and rain 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.

Raffle Prizes – a big thank you to the following for donating prizes: Jitsie, Trickbits, Apico, GasGasUK, PutolineSplat Shop, 6t9, Sharon Bown, Rutland Arms, Bex Spivey Pomade Salon, Global Brands, Potters of Barnsley, plus the numerous other companies and individuals who generously donated so many great prizes.

Here are the full Brough Rough N 2018 Results.
